The Story of Athena

Guess who’s on their way to Ruff Start Rescue?

Remember Athena and her adorable brood of 12 newborn puppies? Last Monday, we shared their story, seeking a foster home after the heartbreaking loss of their owner. A compassionate soul stepped up, and today marks the beginning of their journey with Ruff Start!

At 2.5 weeks old, these precious pups have been under the care of animal control, but they’re eager to experience the warmth and love of a foster home. Upon arrival, they’ll receive comprehensive veterinary attention, ensuring they’re healthy and happy. And they’ll eventually undergo spaying and neutering before finding their new families. Caring for this sizable family comes at a significant cost—estimated at $4,550!
