HHS is also asking for public input on naming nine puppies. The puppies’ mother, 2-year-old Sky, was transferred to the care of HHS while pregnant. She later gave birth to five boys and four girls. HHS is asking supporters to, with a donation, suggest a name for the puppies. The more a supporter donates, the more name suggestions they can submit. All donations will help provide food, vaccines, spay/neuter surgeries, and more for not only the puppies, but also for Sky. There will be a Facebook Name Drawing on April 27.
