HHS is also asking the public’s opinion on the nomination of nine puppies. The puppies’ mother, Sky, 2, was in the care of HHS during her pregnancy. She then gave birth to five boys and four girls. HHS is asking supporters, with a donation, to suggest a name for the puppies. The more a donor donates, the more name suggestions they can submit. All donations will help provide food, vaccines, neutering surgeries and more, not only for the puppies, but also for Sky. There will be a Facebook raffle on April 27.
