CAMPBELL COUNTY, Va. (WDBJ7) After being abandoned in the cold and rain outside the Campbell County animal shelter over the weekend, the pregnant pup, Tilly, has found a foster home.

Along with a photo came this post on the Friends of Campbell County Animal Control's Facebook page.

"Everyone has been asking about Tilly—We are happy to report that a foster family locally offered to take her in and hang onto her for as long as needed. We are hoping to find her a rescue where she can go and deliver her puppies, but they are fully prepared to deliver babies if that can’t happen. Regardless, we are thrilled that Tilly is out of the shelter tonight."

In an earlier post, the shelter said Tilly was about 45 days pregnant. She'll likely have her puppies within the next 10-15 days.
