Yadira and her puppies

YADIRA'S PUPPIES
YADIRA
Yadira is a small shy dog, she must be 3 years old. She is mangy and has an old scar--probably from a tight chain or rope. And she was abandoned this weekend with 3 puppies--a little more than a week old, maybe 2.
Yadira is very sweet but somehow she doesn't seem to be too interested in the puppies and she doesn't seem to have much milk either. I had to bottle-fed the puppies this morning because they were very hungry.
PUPPY #1 (MALE)

are they at the beach or did you get them? won't they die if you don't take them if she isn't interested in them? i feel for you and pray for you all daily....

Yes, they are still at the beach but in a relatively safer place. Unfortunately I can't take them home. Without their mom they will need to be fed every 2-3 hours and not many people have the time to do that. That's what I'm asking if someone can take them. Their mom is feeding them but not as much as she should. She was not fed properly and she doesn't have much milk. Apparently they have been at the beach for a couple of days. I'm just reforcing their nutrition with a homemade formula and vitamins once a day.

you are amazing and do so much for so many. i wish more people were like you. as soon as i get paid next week, i am going to donate. do you need a foster in PR?

The 3 puppies are safe now but they will need another foster home once they start eating by themselves in a couple of weeks. We need foster homes in PR too for Sophie's 4 puppies (now 7-8 weeks old) and a foster home for Shilah (who was pparently hit by a car).
