Listen, Mama Roxie, I salute YOU. I carried one baby one time and it was enough. I raised one baby one time and it was enough. I take little steps every day to let go and let her grow up and that's enough. You, Mama Roxie, carried 12 babies at once, cared for 12 babies at once, and now have to let go of all 12 of your babies at once. But, I'm 100% sure the good people at Warrick Humane Society will not only find you the most amazing home but will also get you all fixed up so you can spend the rest of your days footloose and fancy-free.

The WHS in Newburgh wrote in a post this morning:

Meet our Lab mix litter! Mama Roxie had 12 (yes, 12!) babies and they all get spayed and neutered next week. They are in foster care until surgery and are only available for pre-adoption now. They can go home after surgery. These puppies are 11 weeks old. If you are interested in pre-adopting one, please submit an adoption application on our website. All other dogs in your home must be up to date on vaccinations and heartworm prevention, and we will confirm with your vet.
