For two lucky pups at the City of LaGrange Animal Shelter in Georgia, the phrase maternal instinct has taken on a whole new meaning.Only about two weeks old, the puppies were found and rescued on the side of the road; they were left stranded after their poor mother was hit by a car and passed away.
Still too young for solid food, the shelter had to make a decision about how they should be fed. Thankfully, two mama cats were the perfect solution.
Having recently delivered their own litters of kittens, each of these sweet mamas was still in the process of nursing their young.
Rather than the cold, sterile option of feeding the puppies with formula out of a syringe, the shelter employees decided to try something slightly unorthodox.
Each of the pups was brought to one of the moms, and they quickly wiggled their way into the brood.
