By participating in the Mommy & Me Program you are agreeing to foster your dogs puppies until we can find safe placement for them. By completing and signing the application below, you agree to the program’s terms and conditions on the back of this form. Please address any questions or concerns with a PAWS representative before signing. Concho Valley PAWS agrees to spay and vaccinate the mother dog at no cost to you as long as the puppies are safely cared for until placement.
Terms and Conditions
Sadly, hundreds of puppies enter the shelter each year due to accidental pregnancies. Because owners often do not know how to responsibly rehome litters, they surrender them to shelters. Unfortunately, many do not realize that more than 50% of the puppies surrendered to municipal shelters do not survive. They succumb to disease as their immune systems are not fully developed and further weakened if they are removed from their mother too soon.
We want to help you save them. We also want to help you learn how to properly care for the mother dog beginning with helping you into compliance with local law which requires all pets to be spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. These steps will not only improve the health of the mother dog, but will prevent further accidental pregnancies.
