When a very pregnant, homeless dog came into a rural Texas shelter, the least that should have been expected was to provide the mother dog with a clean kennel, a blanket and a safe place for her to safely deliver her puppies. Instead, “Momma Marble” as she would eventually be named, gave birth in a dirty cage – a place where no new lives should ever have been born.
And if it hadn’t been tragic enough that the emaciated Momma Marble had given birth to her puppies in an environment overrun with filth and disease, the poor dog witnessed each and everyone of her newborn puppies die from the unsanitary conditions. One by one, someone would take them away from her as she desperatelytried over and over again to lick them; hoping they would each just breathe again.
Days later there was nothing left for Momma Marble; the babies she coddled so lovingly were gone. Her fate had been set in stone on Monday, as she was scheduled to be euthanized. After all, she was filthy, missing clumps of her coat and gradually getting sicker day by day. As Momma Marble’s story went viral on social media, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC had just been notified; Stacey Silverstein, co-founder of the organization, committed to saving the dog’s life.
“Tears, tears and more tears,” Stacey posted on the group’s Facebook page. “Marble is NOW SAFE and needs immediate medical care
She needs to feel love and to know her life is just beginning and her awful past is just a memory behind her.”
