Default Too Late to Spay?

Post on behalf of a friend. She has found an adorable little pit mix. After a week, no one has claimed the dog (dumping is very common in this area) and she wants to keep her. The dog is very cute, very sweet, and VERY pregnant.
Firend does not feel as if she is capable of whelping a litter, providing the proper care/socialization for one, or finding homes for the puppies. Pits and pit mixes are a dime a dozen here.
Her own vet feels that it is too late to spay the bitch without comprimising her health. The local spay/neuter place will do it, but they will do anything that isn't delivering right on the table.
"Libby" is estimated to be about 3/4 of the way through the pregnancy, but she is HUGE! I wouldn't be suprised to have her deliver 9 or 10 puppies.
None of the local shelters will take the pups when they are of age, except for animal control, where they will probably be PTS.
Is it too late to do and E-spay on Libby?
