Upon arrival for her pre-transport examination, after her rescue from a kill shelter, it was discovered that young Jillian was in fact pregnant with at least 8 puppies. Despite the additional costs this would incur, A New Chance Animal Rescue decided to bring her north where she was able to give birth to nine wonderful puppies in her foster home.
A frequent and life threatening occurrence among young mothers is an inability to produce sufficient milk for their babies. Jillian was a victim of this, but thanks to the hard work of her loving foster mother, puppies were saved with homemade formula. Mothers everywhere can sympathize with Jillian‘s situation and surely want to see her rest without worrying about the cost of care for her babies!
