A social media push is currently underway for a young, stray dog’s unborn puppies. The pregnant dog, known only by her identification number A5230462, is near her due date, but she is scheduled to be spayed.
The advocates plead for her puppies
On Friday, a public Facebook post explains the sad situation:
Please read- NO SUGARCOATING!!
This term, 1 year old, Unspayed TERM pregnant dog will be spayed on Monday. This means that her term puppies will each be born and one by one will be given a heart stick. This is HORRENDOUS that a civilized society accepts this heinous act of cruelty.
Pregnant dogs should ALWAYS be Rescue only! Why make a dog go through so much pain when you don’t have to?
There’s two partnered LA county rescues who will take her and her unborn babies. There is ABSOLUTELY NO reason to make her go through this. She has a private party CTA, and because of that her babies will be killed. Not euthanized, but killed.
The arguments for and against
Some people will argue that there are already too many homeless pets and there is no room in the world for more puppies – others (many others) believe that spaying a full term dog is simply cruel. Those fighting for these unborn puppies are hopeful that the animal control agency will reconsider spaying this young Cocker spaniel and allow her to go to a partnered rescue agency.
