This is Kiki, and these are her eight beautiful four-week-old puppies. The little family is currently in the care of IFAW Project Manager Dr. Erika Flores, in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.
Kiki was found in a neighborhood that's part of Playa del Carmen called Ejido, an area where local community members live, rather than the areas commonly seen by tourists.
In Ejido, roaming dogs are very much a part of the neighborhood.
People enjoy their presence and tend to watch out for them and provide care when they can.
For Kiki though, it was a bit of a different story.
