Like every shelter and dog rescue center, the Marin Humane Society every once in a while receives a share of dogs that are afraid of humans. When they however realized that one of the shelter dogs is beyond sad and lonely, they decided to examine it and found out that it had recently given birth to a litter. The mom had been torn apart from her babies.

Fortunately, the center decided to take matters a little bit further. They started investigating the previous owner of the pup and demanded of them to surrender the puppies of the mom as well, explaining that they needed her to feel safe and survive.

The video shows the encounter between this mama and her dogs, when one of the rescuers shows her that her pups are safe and will be under her care from now on. The momma’s reaction speaks for itself- her expression changes so fast the moment she caught an eye of her beloved babies. So beautiful!
