Tears: Homeless dog’s unbearable heartache as she watched newborn puppies die

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.”

    Most of Texas really sucks. How can any human watch this day after day and not go ballistic?Poor Marble–poor babies. Where is volunteer services? Volunteers would have taken her home with them. Where were neighbors, friends, family when it was known Marble needed help. Rescue Dogs Rock NYC answered the call soon as they could. Bless them. When is Texas going to be inhabited by caring humans in a greater percentage? Right now Texas is batting very low.

      Texas is a very backwards state, with lots of rednecks and white trash. This is a state that voted for Trump after all.
      That says a lot!

        I agree, they are heartless. If, this is how animals are treated that says alot for how they treat each other! Also, they have Senator Ted Cruz. There’s not much more you can say!

    Texas again! There are very few good shelters in Texas and very few good people that take care of the animals. Doesn’t anybody care anymore?

    This is sickening, how do people that are supposed to have dog’s best interests at heart allow this to happen? Why wasn’t Rescue Dogs Rock NYC called before all these precious pups died? I am really getting tired of the stories coming out of Texas, there are supposed to be people who care about the animals there but where are they! They don’t seem to be running some of the shelters! Rest in peace precious pups, prayers for your momma!

    Heartbreaking! How can anyone watch that and do nothing? Clean that pig sty!

    That place is DISGUSTING!!! I got one of my dogs from a VERY small, rural shelter here in Virginia, and it looked NOTHING like that!!! It’s clean, not moldy, and looks like the people working there care, because they do!

    Everyone working in that place should be fired and people should be hired who give a damn. Utterly inexcusable!

    Why can’t these monsters be put in prison? Are there no more ethical people left that should have reported this and possibly saved the puppies? I hope that their children never want to be like their parents. There is a special place in Hell reserved for them all!

    Another prime example of how Texas treats animals – this is beyond disgusting – all this piss poor staff stood around and did NOTHING for Mama Marble except put her in a filthy disgusting cage w/a filthy disgusting blanket and watch those puppies die. We need to know the name of this hell hole – it should NOT be allowed to operate – Only when Rescue Dogs Rock NYC appeared was the mother dog saved – Good Lord – Texas is the American China.

    I would expect this type of treatment of a stray dog who is about to give birth to a 3rd world country, but not in this country, although Texas has earned the recognition of being like a 3rd world country where dogs are concerned. They couldn’t even provide a clean area for this mama dog to give birth and then help them survive? Shelters are suppose to be there to protect these vulnerable animals, not make it worse. This shelter, director and staff should all be investigate and charges brought against them. New director, and caring staff should be hired to replace those who allowed these pups to die without trying to save them. Thanks to RDR of NY, this mama will have the life she should have had.

    Shame on Texas! Close the pigsty down and fire the staff. They are useless, allowing the puppies to die in such filth and then planned to kill the mama dog, Marble. Disgusting! Thank God for RDR.

    Where is the responsibility of the county, SPCA,? Surely someone out there has to be responsible for the shelter. This bought tears to my eyes and heart, so sad. What happen to the staff that runs this shelter????

    Shame on that shelter……the shelters in Texas are no good……that place needs to be shut down……if they would just solicit the community and people would pull together to help with food, beds & blankets…….those puppies should not have died……I’m so glad Mama is safe though and very far from that nasty shelter…….KARMA will get them.

    Why don’t the people in Texas speak up? They need to call their local elected officials & report this abuse. If enough people raised hell with their Governor, state reps, county, city & town they would do something. Until people in mass numbers speak it will never change. I live in a small no kill state but it wasn’t always no kill. I sent emails to the President a few times already & I will keep sending them but your state government really is where it has to change. Don’t write or call once, keep calling & get more people to so the same.

    YOU WOULD THINK HUMANS THAT WORKED WITH ANIMALS WOULD REALLY LOVE THEM BUT MANY DON’T SO WHAT THE HELL DO THEY DEAL WITH ANIMALS. THEY NEED TO WORK WITH PISS ASS HUMANS. HEARTLESS BASTARDS CAN WATCH THIS KIND OF SHIT MAKES ME WANT TO SMASH THESE POS ON THE SIDE OF THEIR BRAINLESS HEADS. IF WE GOT RID OF ALL THESE ANIMAL ABUSERS AND UNLOVING SUBHUMANS WHO DON’T CARE ABOUT ANIMALS THIS WOULD BE A BETTER WORLD.
