When Sanjana Madappa, from Bangalore, India fell pregnant with her first child she welcomed any advice she could get about being a new mother.
However, one thing she never expected anybody to say was that she should get rid of her five beloved rescue dogs – in fact she actually refused the idea.
Rather than pander to the more experienced moms, Sanjana and her husband Aditya Raheja, decided to show everyone just how much important her gorgeous pooches are in her growing family…
The happy couple both work in Bangalore, Aditya works in real estate and the soon-to-be mother works at Compassion Unlimited Plus Action animal shelter, so it’s needless to say that Sanjana is absolutely crazy about all things animals – in fact, the couple rescued five dogs of their own.
Because she worked at the animal shelter as a welfare officer for a long time, she had heard every excuse in the book about why families decide to give up their pets and becoming pregnant was actually a popular one! Often, Sanjana would try to talk the families out of it but her advice was never taken on board since she wasn’t a mother herself.
