Capybara Adopts Orphan Puppies

Cheesecake is a capybara who lives at Rocky Ridge Refuge in North Arkansas. When a littler of doxie puppies was abandoned, she took it upon herself to take them under her paw and keep them company and be their foster mommy!

Aren't we a cute family?
See how they all pose for the camera? Adorable! Now watch them play!

P.S. So... we still need the same leg for our transport this weekend... and one other that I totally forgot about! Eek! If you can help drive, please fill out our form now!

Manning, SC to Fayetteville, NC

Milford, CT to South Kingstown, RI
South Kingstown, RI to Boston, MA

(We have one person who could do either direction, so we need one of these filled.)

Oh hai. I'm Harry and I need a ride!
Here's Harry (he and his friends are named after Harry Potter characters!). He is a little scared, but getting better. He ended up at the shelter after someone found him. He's still so little, so we know he'll end up being a super cutie once he knows love!

  1. What a good mommy she is! So tolerant! The deer on the other hand.....

  2. A nice mommy....you can tell the puppies love her!!! Hope you get the transport all scheduled. Good luck Dorian.

  3. Well, at least they are long and short like she is! animals feel motherly towards small ones of any species. so, do we!

    Hope Harry (who is adorable) and his sibs get where they need to go. The dogs and the capybara together are MOL funny. Purrs and hugs from the kitties at The Cat on My Head, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

  5. Absolutely adorable!! So sad they were abandoned but in a better place at least. When pups are abandoned I always think of their poor mother. Did she feed them? Is she stuck with a mountain of milk which is not healthy and who really cares for her when her pups were abandoned by them? So sad.


You know what would be really cute? If you left a comment... :)
