A non-profit organization in Northern California called The Grace Foundation recently saved an abandoned and pregnant Dachshund mix named Casey who was scheduled to be euthanized. Not only did they provide a safe and loving home for Casey but they also successfully delivered her five pups. The runt of the litter, who they named Beyonce, nearly died at birth but Dr. Michael Russell, the foundation’s veterinarian, and Executive Director, Beth DeCaprio, gave the puppy necessary heart compressions and mouth-to-mouth resuscitation that ultimately saved her life.

According to The Grace Foundation’s website none of the puppies will be available until after May 3rd. They might hold on to Beyonce a little longer than the rest of her siblings to make sure that she is healthy and strong.
Here is the foundation’s mission:
Here at The Grace Foundation our mission is to protect, care for and heal these two important groups:
- Abused and Neglected Animals
Since its founding in 2004, The Grace Foundation has been dedicated to saving the lives of horses and other animals. Grace provides critical care and rehabilitation for abused and neglected horses, livestock, dogs, and other animals.
Many of these animals are then utilized for equine-assisted learning and therapeutic programs for youth and children. Since its inception, The Grace Foundation has helped thousands of kids who are at-risk or have suffered from abuse and neglect themselves.
Grace also offers programs for people of all ages that are struggling with autism and other physical and emotional challenges, as well as a variety of youth leadership programs and life science classes.
Thanks Grace Foundation for saving Casey and her pups and for all that you do! We will all be hoping these pups and many others find the loving homes they deserve.
