He came across a street dog named Amira, and began to care for her the best he could. When they discovered that she was pregnant, Alaa gave up his room so she could have a comfortable place to rest.
Since they have 80 feline residents, to keep every animal comfortable, Alaa built a little house for the dog next to the sanctuary.
A couple weeks ago, Amira went into labor, but sadly, all three puppies were stillborn. It left her broken hearted. “We were sad and shocked… We gave her a stuffed teddy bear and tried to cuddle with her because she was very sad,” Alessandra Abidin, volunteer of the rescue group, told Love Meow.
That’s when Junior, a kitten they took in from the streets, noticed the teddy bear, and decided to approach it and the dog.
She slowly walked up to Amira and eventually made her way to her paws. Then she proceeded to rub her face on her. It was then things began to change.
A few days later, Amira was no longer holding her teddy bear.
Instead, she was playing with a tiny kitten on her back and tending to her like a mother would her puppies.
