A dog named Esperanza was brought to a shelter in Mexico when she was just one-year-old. It was obvious that she had recently given birth to puppies, but it was unknown where they ended up.
At the same time, a litter of kittens were brought to the shelter. They were without a mother, so they had no milk to help them survive. That’s when Esperanza stepped up to help.
Esperanza took the kittens in as her own, nursing them and caring for them. Although she didn’t have her own babies, she took care of these kittens as if she had given birth to them herself. She was so gentle with them, and she was such a great mother.
Esperanza and the kittens were then taken to Coco’s Animal Welfare, a rescue in Mexico, so that they wouldn’t have to stay in the shelter any longer.
A family who was on vacation in Playa Del Carmen decided to stop at Coco’s Animal Welfare to pet kittens. While there, they learned about a dog who was nursing a litter of kittens. When they met Esperanza, they fell in love at first sight and decided to adopt her.
Esperanza finished raising her kittens before flying back to the United States to start her new life with her forever family.
She quickly settled into her new home, but it would take her quite some time to learn how to be a dog. At first, she didn’t know what dog food or toys were, but now she loves to play!
Esperanza loves her new family, and they love her back just as much, if not more. All of the kittens that she helped raised were also adopted into loving homes!
