Esperanza was only one year old when she was abandoned. Luckily, a local shelter from Mexico saved her life by taking her in. The poor doggy looked like she had just given birth, but her puppies were nowhere to be found and she was sad. This is when the local shelter staff came up with the brilliant idea to put Esperanza in the same room with a litter of kittens that needed a mother.

20. Surrogate Mother

To everyone’s surprise, Esperanza started caring for the little kittens as soon as she got close to them. The dog was not just helping them out, she was saving their lives because they needed milk in order to survive.

19. Loving Mother

Even though dogs and cats are natural enemies, Esperanza’s maternal instincts kicked in when she saw the litter of kittens. It was clear that Esperanza is a loving dog that was abandoned by a cruel person.

18. Finally Safe

After spending a couple of weeks at the local shelter, the animal rescue known as Coco’s Animal Welfare decided to take them in. Esperanza and her kitten babies were finally safe from harm’s way. To make things even better, Coco’s Animal Welfare is also the place where Esperanza will meet her new family.

17. New Family

Esperanza and the kittens were safe, but they still needed a home. Luckily, this is when Evi Power and her family came to visit the animal rescue center and fell in love with the cute dog. Without giving it any second thought, they put Esperanza in an airplane to take her home. What happened next is amazing!

14. Family Vacation

“We were on vacation in Playa Del Carmen in 2010. Three days in, we decided to pet kittens at Coco’s Animal Welfare. As we were leaving, they asked if we’d like to see a dog who was nursing a litter of kittens” said Evi Pover.
