Help Orphan Puppies, Inc.

Help Orphan Puppies, Inc is a rescue organization dedicated entirely to puppies. We accept all puppies into our program, regardless of abuse, injuries or medical needs, or breed. We believe that all puppies should be given an equal chance and most behavior problems later in life can be attributed to people, not the breed. Our puppies are allowed to develop and grow at their own pace. We do not place a time limit on our puppies, rather placing them when they are ready for their "forever home". All puppies are raised with people and others dogs of all sizes. We crate train all of our puppies. By not having too many puppies at one time, we learn their personalities and therefor...

Puppies, puppies, and more puppies!

Izzy's x-ray

Spring has definitely arrived!  Several weeks ago we were contacted about a pregnant dog in need. One of our volunteers quickly drove to Pennyslvania to pick up this poor mom, in the middle of a blizzard none the less!  Izzy arrived on Sunday and Monday morning was already in labor!  The last of the 9 puppies arrived at 8 PM after 15 hours of labor!  We were blessed with 6 boys and 3 girls and thankfully at 4 weeks of age all 9 babies are thriving.  
Thanks to your continued support, we are able to save dogs like Izzy and insure that her babies will be delivered in a warm and safe home versus a shelter where few if any would survive.  We hope that you will continue to support us and our efforts to save more moms and babies.

Nursing moms and more! December 2014

We cannot believe 2014 is drawing to a close!  Everyone is preparing for the holidays but unfortunately the dogs in need do not break for the holidays.  In November we were contacted about 2 pregnant dogs that were at risk of being euthanized due to lack of space as the shelter had taken in numerous pregnant dogs in a matter of days.  We quickly shuffled puppies around and were able to save both mothers!  Lyla blessed us with 6 babies, as did Clara but we sadly lost one after 9 days.  Both moms arrived skin and bones, clearly malnourished for an extended period of time.  These two moms have blossomed in our care, both proving how a scared and fearful dog consisting of nothing but skin and bones can flourish into a happy and loving dog. In addition to Clara and Lyla and their babies, we continue to have several dogs residing with our behaviorist for extensive rehabilitation.  

We cannot thank you enough for your continued support of us and our cause.  We continue to strive to rescue so many unwanted pets while accepting the challenge of finding them loving forever homes.  None of which we could accomplish without generous donations from so many of you.  

We wish everyone a very happy and safe holiday season!

Thank you again from all of us at Help Orphan Puppies.

September Update

Angie after her first meal of gruel...
Angie after her first meal of gruel...

This summer has been very busy for us - puppy season seemed to start early and does not appear to be slowing down.  We took in two nursing mothers at once - a record for us.  The first mom, Abby, came to us with 8 nursing babies, 2 weeks old, plus a heartworm positive diagnosis.  The second mom, Luna, came to us with 4 nursing babies, only 4 days old. Thankfully all the babies survived but not without numerous bumps in the road.  At 3 weeks of age we determined that one of Abby's babies, Angie, was not developing at the same rate as her siblings.  A visit to our specialist resulted with a neurological impairment diagnosis.  Two weeks later our primary veterinarian determined that Abby and her babies all had sarcoptic mange - highly contagious to humans and dogs alike, as the foster mom (me!) quickly discovered.  Thankfully everyone has been treated, humans and dogs alike, and are on the road to recovery.  Abby will be starting heartworm treatment after she is spayed and Angie is receiving daily therapy.  Luna and her babies thankfully have been developing and growing without any issues!  

Through it all we are so grateful for everyone's support.  Through your generous donations, we have been able to continue to save lives like these moms and their babies.  We continue to thank you and hope that you will continue to support our efforts.
