The BC SPCA’s West Vancouver Branch is asking members of the public to help a mother dog named Panda, who is caring for her seven puppies.
Panda came to the SPCA after her owner fell ill and had to stay in an assisted living facility that does not allow pets. This three-year-old French Bulldog was heavily pregnant and required a C-section to safely deliver her puppies.
Panda’s puppies were born on July 11 with the help of a veterinarian. This brave mother dog is recovering from her surgery while caring for her newborn pups. “Panda is social, full of life and love,” says West Vancouver SPCA branch manager Charlotte Ellice. “She’s currently in a foster home taking care of her little ones with another two adult dogs and a cat. They all get along really well.”
Panda’s C-section, daily care, and eventual spay/neuter surgeries for her and her puppies is expected to reach $3,972. She will be recovering from surgery and caring for her babies over the next two months before they are all ready to be adopted.
Bills include surgery, medication, vaccinations, regular health check, and daily care for Panda until she’s ready for adoption. If her medical costs and cost of care is less than is raised in her name, additional funds will provide care for other animals.
Personal updates for Panda will be provided to anyone who donates to her campaign.
