Desexing saves lives

Giving birth at 1am in a comfortable foster home might not have been a reality for little Muffin here. Found with her ‘boyfriend’ wandering the streets, no one came forward to reclaim them.

Both of these poor little dogs were unkempt and lost, but luckily found a safe haven at the RSPCA and given the care they needed.

Placed carefully into a foster home to calm her nerves, Muffin gave birth to four bundles of fluff. But sadly, one puppy didn’t make it.

Oh how different their lives would have been if Muffin and her ‘boyfriend’ had been desexed!

While puppies and kittens are adorable, having an unexpected litter can be time consuming and costly. Prevention is always better and helps ensure that no animal ends up homeless like Muffin and her pups.
