"We are optimistic, but still being realistic about their chances," Holm said. "There are a few small ones, who definitely get more individual attention to keep them on track, and a couple pretty chunky ones. We all know their condition can change at any moment, but each day they survive makes us a little more confident about our chances of success."
The puppies are now 10 days old, and are still fighting to survive. Unfortunately, one of the puppies didn't make it and passed away on Friday morning. While everyone is mourning this loss, staffers and volunteers are staying positive and continuing to work to help the eight remaining little fighters.
