I attempted to find her owners and then was informed that she was a stray and had been eating out of a dumpster of a nearby cafe for over a year,” she said about Dove. “All of our no-kill shelters were full and I couldn’t just leave her knowing that she was going to have to take care of her babies in the wild.”

Even though she was pregnant and close to her due date at the time, she still decided to take Done in and give her all she needed. They became close and almost inseparable soon after.

I am not certain that we have birth on the exact same day I just know that when I returned from the hospital with my baby – Dove had also given birth while I was gone. Now Dove and her babies are all doing great. They all got properly vetted and rehomed and are all living spoiled indoor lives.”

I have been vegan for over 5 years and so animals have always been very important to me. I feel extremely connected with all living beings on this earth and I feel like it’s important to be their voices,” Lauren said.

“I feel like animals are capable of much more emotional depth than most humans give them credit for. So I knew that I had to bring dove in and give her a safe place to have her babies without having to worry and fight for their survival. I related to that being pregnant and about to have my own child.”
