A homeless, pregnant pit bull was wandering the streets of York, South Carolina, on a cold winter day when animal control picked her up. Instead of taking her to a shelter, they decided to contact a local rescue to take her in. The officers knew it would be the better option for the soon-to-be mama to give birth in the more comfortable setting rather than some scary shelter.
It was Halfway There Rescue who agreed to take in the pregnant pit, and they named her Daya. Unfortunately, Daya lost her babies in utero and caught a bad infection that would require surgery. She was having the worst luck but got through the operation smoothly and went on to live at a foster to recuperate.
The sweet dog was now safe, but she still had a huge hole in her life. The staff noticed Daya would take in socks and toys and treat them as if they were her puppies to fill the void in her heart.
So they decided to do something about it. Daya was introduced to an orphaned puppy who Halfway There Rescue took in after finding her on the street. A ruptured eye had to be removed, and she needed a mother more than anything.
