A litter of six newborn pups that were rescued last year, were reunited on their first birthday.

Six pack of puppies reunited on first birthday

Six puppies, rescued last year by the FVRD’s CARE Centre were reunited.

The babies are all grown up.

Last year, on November 11, the Fraser Valley Regional District’s CARE Centre was called out to rescue a litter of newborn puppies.

Looking after six newborn puppies was a round-the-clock operation for many weeks, but thanks to the staff, the puppies thrived and were successfully adopted in February.

Piper, Poppy, Winston, Bailey, Sarge and Tank have turned one and to celebrate, the FVRD held a puppy party at Island 22’s off-leash dog park.

Four of the six puppies were able to attend, and a good time was had by all despite the weather.

“It was so much fun to watch the puppies reconnect with each other,” said FVRD vice- chair Patricia Ross.

“When they first met, you could see little sparks of recognition among them, and as they played, we got to see their different personalities emerge. I am so grateful to the staff that stepped up and volunteered their time to make sure this story had a happy ending, with six puppies in forever homes where they are loved and well-cared for.”

All six puppies are happy and healthy, an outcome the centre hopes for all of the dogs that come into its care.

For more information about what it takes to offer a dog a home, please call the CARE Centre at 1-844-495-CARE or email adoptadog@fvrd.ca.
