Castries, Saint Lucia: HelpAWS, the animal welfare organisation of Saint Lucia, has recently introduced four little puppies, who joined the shelter earlier this week. While informing about puppies the organisation stated, “These four precious little ladies were originally part of an 8-pack; sadly, two were given away, and two were stolen before we could get them safely into the shelter. The good news is that the woman whose female dog gave birth to these sweeties has been taking good care of them, so they appear to be in relatively good condition.”

“A common story on the island, she unfortunately just didn’t have the time or resources to continue to care for them. While many people would’ve left them to fend for themselves, we are thankful she reached out and asked us to bring them in and ensure they have every chance at a long, healthy, happy life. She has proven to be a responsible pet owner who cares about the well-being of her pets, and we’ve promised to get her mom dog spayed as she doesn’t want her to contract any diseases, illnesses or unwanted babies again,” it added.

It further mentioned that sometimes when a litter comes in, the organisation has a difficult time telling them apart. Not with these four – each of them has its own distinct look. They are beautiful babies with the sweetest eyes and boopable noses.

It further mentioned that arriving at the shelter can be nerve-wracking for even the most confident and socialized puppy, with all of the new and unfamiliar noises and smells. These beans are a bit on the shy side right now and are probably still confused by their 2 hour ride to the shelter, which was the first time any of them had ever been in a vehicle. It’ll take a few days for them to get their footing, but we know from experience they will be frolicking, taking treats and giving kisses in no time.

“Our shelter is beyond filled right now, but we can’t turn away those who need us the most. If you would like to help us care for these babies as well as those already in our care, please consider donating via Etransfer, PayPal or Zelle to or via Venmo to @helpaws,” the post by the organisation read at the end.
