An endearing, young mother and her five, four-month-old puppies were surrendered two days ago to an over-crowded, high kill animal control facility in Nashville, N.C.

Sadly, because this family was surrendered and because the facility is already crowded, those who have not been adopted are already in the "critical" folder - in other words, at high risk of being destroyed soon.

Two of the puppies were adopted on the first day, but the mother and her three remaining pups are still at great risk.

A volunteer photographer shared the following about the 2-year-old mother, "Truffles."

Truffles is sweet friendly and pretty submissive. She was calm and laid back, but loved attention. She is an awesome momma, she was more worried about her babies than getting some fresh air. She would be a great lap dog for any family!

The four-month-old puppies are scared, but friendly.

The entire family is at risk.

You have the power to help this innocent family escape a dire fate which is out of their control.

Networking saves lives.

Please share this article with the hopes that the photos, and information, will spur someone to adopt. Thank you.
