Orphaned newborn puppies rescued from Alabama fire in dire need of rescue

See also

On Thursday evening, a compassionate firefighter from Ensley, Ala. helped to rescue eight newborn puppies from a house fire. The mother dog, in a panic, ran from the burning home, and has not been found according to Two by Two Animal Rescue.

On Friday afternoon, the rescue put out a plea on their Facebook page asking for a rescue or Good Samaritan to step forward to help out with this dire situation:

"What is needed? These puppies need a rescue or a Good Samaritan to go get them IMMEDIATELY from the firefighter. Two by Two is beyond capacity and we are unable to help at this time. He has tried to feed them via eye dropper with no success. They have not eaten since last night."

The puppies will be transported to the Hope Animal Clinic in Bessemer where an account titled "House Fire Pups" will be set up for donations to help. They will be health evaluated and checked for smoke inhalation.

The pups are estimated to be younger than two-weeks of age; their eyes have not yet opened.

What does it take to care for abandoned newborn puppies? Always consult with a veterinarian first since a commercial canine milk replacement supplement is needed. Puppies can suffer from irreparable harm and severe diarrhea if given cow's milk.

More information is available about caring for newborn pups from The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) by clicking here.
