Molly had no reason to be jolly. This one to two-year-old Labrador Retriever was not only a stray when she arrived at the Halifax County Animal Control shelter in North Carolina on January 7th, but she was also pregnant. In fact, very pregnant. Molly urgently needed to get out of the shelter.
Early on January 8th, the volunteers with the Friends of Halifax County, NC Animal Control quickly got the word out about Molly’s plight. Just past noon on the same day, as an incentive for a rescue to take Molly, RADAR provided an offer to assist with her vetting costs. A few hours later, Moore Labs Rescue in North Carolina stepped forward to take Molly!
The rescue immediately took Molly to the vet for her initial vetting. X-rays revealed just how pregnant she was: at least 10 puppies on the way! On January 10th, Molly gave birth to 11 puppies! All the puppies survived and are doing quite well. The rescue told us that Molly has been a great mom to her puppies. Click here to view more photos of Molly and her pups.
RADAR paid $150 towards Molly’s initial vetting and x-ray costs.
UPDATE! All funds for Molly have been raised! Thank you!
UPDATE! Molly has been transferred to Ruff Rehab Rescue in New Jersey.
UPDATE! Molly has been adopted by her foster family! Her forever family had fostered Molly and her 11 puppies. They fell in love with Molly and just couldn’t let her go!
