Mama Dog with Foster Mom Maura (Photo provided)
Local animal foster group Lakeshore PAWS is sending out a thank you to everyone involved in helping the mom and 17 puppies who were found in Porter County this past weekend. Porter County Sheriffs Police say anyone with information on who may have dumped the dogs in the area of State Park Road and Waverly Friday night is asked to call Porter County Animal Control. Lakeshore PAWS says they have received more than seventy applications to adopt the pups, so are no longer able to take applications for them. The group also says the mother is now in a foster home. Lakeshore PAWS will be hosting an adoption event this Saturday (May 18th) at Coco’s Canine Cabana, but the 17 pups will not be available for adoption, though a number of other animals who need homes will be.
