People Told This Pregnant Woman To Give Up Her Dogs, But She Did Something Else To Prove Them Wrong

Sanjana Madappa was pregnant, but this baby technically wasn’t her first “child.” Madappa already had five dogs that she adopted from a shelter she works at called Compassion Unlimited Plus Action, and considered them to be her children.

When she got pregnant, many people told her that she should give them up before the baby arrived, but she could never imagine giving them up for any reason, including a pregnancy. Instead of listening to this suggestion, Madappa did something even better. She did a photoshoot with her furbabies to prove everyone wrong.

Working at a shelter, Madappa has seen so many people give up their dogs when they become pregnant. Madappa believes the people either don’t care, or just don’t have enough support. People would always tell her that she didn’t understand because she was never pregnant.

Once Madappa became pregnant, her opinion on the matter still had not changed. Her doctor, family, and friends have told her that she should give up all five of her pups before the baby is born, but she didn’t feel like she should give up five family members just to make room for one.

Instead of arguing with those people or disagreeing, she found a better way to give her opinion. That’s when she did the photoshoot with photographer Bhargavi Naveen, to show everyone how much she and her husband, along with her five dogs, will love their son.
