People find the saddest thing in this box on a 90 degree day

A resident of Anson County, North Carolina was out and about a day when he saw a green bin sitting alone along the edge of some woods. Intrigued and a little confused, they leaned over to peek inside – and were horrified to discover five tiny puppies, writes thedodo

The puppies were very young and too small to climb out of the basket on their own, meaning someone had put them in there and then cruelly abandoned them. They were all completely trapped in the bin, baking in the 90 degree heat, and if they’d been left alone out there much longer, they sure as hell wouldn’t have made it.

The Good Samaritan quickly grabbed a crate and loaded all the puppies into it, offering them much-needed food and water. They were soon transferred to the care of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC’s veterinary partner in Columbia, South Carolina.

“They were weak and dehydrated and apparently had a ‘funny smell’,” she told The Dodo. “One wasn’t doing well, so we feared parvo, but after a few fluids, baths and good nutrition, all five are fine so far.”

The puppies were about 6 weeks old and were named Sullivan, Snoopy, Sanders, Simon and Sassafrass. After being vaccinated, wormed, and given medications and plenty of fluids, the puppies are doing well and starting to grow, and all the rescuers are so thankful for the kind person who saved their lives.

“They were lucky they were found in time,” O’Sullivan said.

The puppies still have a long way to go before they’re adopted, but people can start applying for them now. They are currently receiving the best of care and as soon as they are strong enough they can move away and find their loving forever homes where they never have to worry about being neglected again.
