Ohio puppies on the path to better lives

RedRover Responders volunteer Donna Lagomarsino says goodbye to the 3 mamas and 16 puppies she cared for on this deployment. Donna medicated and cleaned each puppy daily, watched for signs of infection and soothed the mothers. Her peaceful and calm nature spread throughout the "Baby Barn," helping the tiny pups and moms settle in comfortably until rescue groups could take them in.

We're so thankful to be in Ohio to help change the course of these dogs' lives. It feels good to know that these puppies won't have to experience the squalor and misery that their mothers did. RedRover Responders will continue to work with rescue groups to send the Ohio dogs on their way to loving new homes.

Thank you, Donna, for taking such good care of these dogs. Just look at their happy faces!

    Just wanted to thank you so much Donna for taking over where I left off. Would love to know where they went and if any of the other dogs in the big barn were adopted.

    1. Hi Ali,

      It was my pleasure to volunteer in the puppy barn. Everyone who cared for the puppies and moms prior to me did a fantastic job of loving them and keeping them healthy. All of the puppies, moms, and many of the dogs in the big barn went off to shelters and foster homes. Some even went to forever homes. I actually delivered one today. Everyone is in good care. You can be proud of your efforts.
