Won't you be a Guardian Angel?

 

Hi, I’m Nowra - one of the ‘Narrogin Nine’ pups. 

My brothers and sisters (Nelson, Nellie, Ned, Nikita, Nitro, Nala, Nunyara) and I were taken from our mum and dumped in a cardboard box in a place called Narrogin when we were less than two weeks old.

It was really scary… our eyes hadn’t even opened yet so we had no idea what was going on. And we missed our mum. We needed her warmth and protection, and also her milk.

Thankfully a member of the public found us and we were taken to a local vet. There were 10 of us at this stage, but one of my siblings died before we made it to the clinic. That was a sad day.

The RSPCA was contacted and a friendly RSPCA Inspector quickly organised for us to be taken to the Animal Care Centre in Perth for treatment and care. With round-the-clock bottle feeds, we soon started to thrive; but not my brother Nate Dogg - he passed away peacefully in his sleep… I guess he just wasn’t strong enough to make it without mum.

The team at the RSPCA looked after us so well and did all they could to give us the best chance of survival. Not only did we get milk whenever we wanted it, they also gave us everything else we needed to grow up big, strong and healthy! Oh, and lots of cuddles… they make everything better don’t they?

We’re doing great now, but I do feel sad for the animals who’ll be spending their Christmas in the shelter, and not in a loving home with a family who loves them.

So please become a Guardian Angel and watch over an animal in need this Christmas.

Lots of puppy love and licks,

Nowra, and my brothers and sisters Nelson, Nellie, Ned, Nikita, Nitro, Nala, Nunyara (aka the ‘Narrogin Nine’).
