Georgia, who had just lost her puppies, found three new babies to care for - three adorable kittens who needed a mom.

A pregnant dog in Arizona, United States, lost her puppies, but adopted three kittens to take care of instead.

The dog, an Australian Shepherd mix, was found abandoned by a petrol pump in Arizona, near the US-Mexico border. Georgia, as she was named, was then rescued by a group named The Sunshine Dog Rescue.

Her new caretakers realised she was pregnant; yet, Georgia gave birth to a litter of puppies prematurely. However, because she gave birth way before she was due, none of the puppies survived. The grieving mother was in shock and would frantically search for her babies, according to a report by ABC15 News.

Her caretakers also said that the new mom tore up the blanket she had been given in an attempt to find her puppies. Desperate for a solution, the rescue group put up a post on Facebook asking about kittens who needed a lactating mother. Very soon, they were flooded with requests.

Georgia, who had just lost her puppies, found three new babies to care for - three adorable kittens who needed a mom.

Her caretakers first introduced her to one of the kittens to see how she would react. Georgia first sniffed around and when she seemed to accept the kitten, the others were brought to her too. The rescuers said that they saw a remarkable change in Georgia’s behaviour and she calmed down instantly. She also now spends all her time devoted to her adopted kids and protects them like her own.

A few days ago, another similar incident was reported in Spain when a same-sex penguin couple became first-time moms after adopting and hatching an egg, taken from another couple, together.
