A family of former “street dogs” is behind bars at a busy animal control agency in Corpus Christi, Texas. On Thursday, the Nueces County, TX: Dogs in need of rescue Facebook page wrote a few words on behalf of the at-risk family who is urgently in need of help.
The post is from the perspective of the worried, and tired, mother:
I JUST WANT TO SAVE MY FAMILY.
And a few details were added about what brought this family to the animal control agency:
DARLA and her babies (3 boys and 1 girl) are from the streets of Corpus Christi. Darla is a lab/shepherd mix but a small girl of around 30 pounds and about 4 years old. She has probably had her fair share of babies and who knows their fate.
With a final plea for their lives to be spared:
Mange and struggling on the streets were a dead end and now that end is in sight. Can you give them a happy ending?
Information to save their lives:
