Oklahoma Humane Society caring for 7 orphaned puppies after mom froze to death


Seven four-week-old puppies were recently rescued by the Oklahoma Humane Society after an animal welfare officer found their mother frozen to death in Oklahoma City.

Because of the age of the puppies, the OHS has placed the puppies with a neonatal foster home experienced with puppies so young where they will receive formula, food, vaccinations, spay/neuter and all the love and care they will need for the next several weeks.

The mother of the puppies was too cold and did not survive, but had been able to care for her puppies and kept them warm until help arrived.

“The first night these puppies came home was hard,” stated the foster parent as told to KocoNews5.“They were crying and scared, and I could tell they were looking for mom. With some coaxing they started to eat and have been doing well since then. It was evident their mother had done everything she could for them despite her circumstances.”

Let’s face it – if it’s too cold outside for you, it’s too cold outside for your pets to remain outdoors for long periods of time. An animal cruelty investigation has been opened in reference to the mother dog’s death.

Anyone in Oklahoma City seeing animal neglect or abuse, please call Animal Welfare Dispatch at 405.297.2255.
