  1. So many rescues are giving preference to puppies anymore. It’s sad that we place different values on lives and have no problem separating families or those with lifelong bonds. The breeding has to stop.

  2. What the hell is wrong with you people? Why do you have to be so damm cruel? That mama dog deserves a forever home also, just like her babies. There is no reason in hell that she has to die. No reason whatsoever. Give her babies back to her. They do not belong to you at all. If you actually have a heart, you will bring mama, and babies together again.

  3. Poor sweet dog. Humans have failed dogs horribly…all the other animals too. But dogs are supposed to be our loyal companions…and they are. But people in general sure as hell are not loyal to them. Killing and disposing of “surplus” dogs is so very convenient for “humans,” while doing absolutely NOTHING to stop breeders from mass producing puppies every freaking day, decade after decade. People not only do nothing, they support dog breeders, asking “where else would we get our trendy breed puppies?” People make me sick. I pray that someone great steps up to adopt the momma dog after all she’s been through.

  4. That rescue needs to be Named & Shamed into oblivion that’s no real rescue , real rescues don’t leave mom behind & never will 💔

  5. They should have taken mama too! She’s a young dog with an obviously hard life. Don’t say your a rescue and leave her to die.

  6. What shitty rescue did this should have their license pulled. Why are dogs being killed because they don’t have a home.. yet our tax dollars pay for dumb ass criminals that should die.. priorities for people are so messed up.. please don’t kill this dog because your a worthless shelter..

  7. What an irresposible rescue. Any good one would have taken them all. Every day dogs/animals are treated like disposable objects instead of the living and feeling beings they are. TNR for cats and low cost spay/neuter clinics with a lot of outreach can make such a big difference. Dog are not euthanized, a procedure that is used to end suffering from a very painful and debilitating condition or disease; killing is just that and healthy animals are never euthanized, they are killed. All it takes for a shelter to be no kill is dedication, compassion, and creativity-qualities that too many do not have. I grieve for this dog and every other in this position. Is there not another rescue that can take her? Or would? Some rescues should not use that term with some of the things they do.

  8. How dare try call themselves a rescue!! Rescue the mother bastards!!! They left her in the murder shelter in riverside California!!

  9. Don’t sound like they need to be a Rescue I’m so sick of this kind of shit being done to these animals. May it come full circle on people like this. Rescue my ass.

  10. the name of this rescue should be made public– disgusting.. taking the puppies for the adoption fees and letting mom die- that should not be allowed

  11. did anyone step up for the mama? she birthed puppies… have a heart. The situation with animal over-population across the US is astonishing. These innocent animals did not ask for any of this. Humans are the issue…. be responsible and moral in action people.

  12. Jan : U are just so right!! God Bless you and love u 💕💕 for saying this !!!!! It’s true that mother should have gone with her babies, & there for she should be with her babies. What the hell is wrong with that rescue 😭💔!!!!!!!!!!! If they took one of them, they should of taken mother included. Shame on them, & they call their self a rescue.

  13. Why didn’t the rescuers take Momma separating her from her babies???
    What kind of a “rescue group” are you to separate them????
    Her eyes say it all: her babies were taken from her and now it would appear that there is no hope she will be saved!!
    Shame on you all🤬🤬😢😢🤬🤬😢😢

  14. She is still so young. A mommy’s punishment and taes away her puppies. Quite frankly, you needn’t cal your self rescuers.. how about murderers.
    Please spare her as well as others. If you cannot take care of them, it just takes a small amount to go public and look for adopters.
    This is really sickening.

  15. Just because she is posted here, does not mean someone will save her. If you can FOSTER HER , I can help find a GOOD rescue to save her.
    As a dog networker working from out of state, I can assure you that so many dogs are being dumped at shelters recently, that shelters and rescues are past capacity.
    We need fosters desperately to step up and agree to foster dogs and cats.

    During the pandemic, many people bought puppies. Now that the rent moratorium is over, people are getting evicted. They are dropping off their pets at the shelters.
    The average age of the dogs being killed for space in shelters is 1 yr old. Mothers and their new puppies are being euthanized.

    It is an emergency right now.
    German Shepherds, Huskies, Pit Bulls, Dobie Mastiffs, Border Collies, Labradors, Chihuahuas.
    There are many litters of puppies, 6 month old, 1 yr old, and some senior pets in shelters. They are killing as many as 400/month in one shelter alone
    PLEASE, IF YOU CAN FOSTER IR ADOPT THIS DOG, REACH OUT QUICKLY. Out of state is possible, but not easy.
    Anyone with questions on how to help, please reach out to me by email at,

    To :Animal Victory/Natl Animal News – Thank you for sharing her!!!

  16. Some rescue that is. They should be named and shamed, and the irresponsible human who actually made the decision should be sacked!

  17. This is animal abuse. This “rescue” should be closed down!!!
    Please keep us updated on this beautiful mama!

  18. We should know the name of the horrible cold callous rescue and who runs it. No one should adopt dogs from them. Tell us who did this horrid act.

  19. I really hate rescue groups that do this! They better hope we never find out who they are because I’d make sure people knew and people would stop donating to them! It’s just EVIL to leave the momma dog behind to be murdered! It just ticks me off because they ask for $200-$400 adoption fee. One rescue here wanted $200. for a 13 year old dog with health problems and they offered no help. Some rescues are just dog and cat flippers!
