Detroit Pit Crew Rescues Mother and Babies

In late January 2021, in the midst of the cold snowy Michigan winter, the Detroit Pit Crew stumbled upon a stray momma dog and her puppies living on the streets.  They set out to see if they could help, and they did, indeed! Michigan is known for the cold snowy winters, and this one is no different.  As the Detroit area had snowfall in late January, it was a worrisome time for many humans as well as their animal counterparts.  Seeing a stray out in the cold had the pit crew running, and what they found shocked.

Strays Hide in the Strangest Places

This momma dog knew she had to keep her babies warm, but how was that possible without a home and out in the snow? She found an old abandoned sofa and hid her litter inside the sofa against the broken down cushions.  Even if owners abandoned her, she knew she couldn’t abandon her babies.

First, capture momma and get her safe, then rescue her pups. Once momma was in a cage and being whisked away to a warm cozy spot to heal and be loved, it was time to head back to that old sofa and find the babies.
