It was more like an aerial assault on the shelter when Ariel arrived! This approximately three-year-old Shepherd mix was dumped at the Lee County Animal Services shelter in North Carolina on March 24th. But she was not alone. Ariel arrived with her 10 puppies! This small, rural shelter only has 12 dog runs. They were already close to capacity before Ariel and her family showed up. It was more than they could handle. The shelter could only give Ariel and her pups until 8:00 the next morning to be pulled, or they would be euthanized.
