After Being Dumped, Sad Puppies Get Rescued & Treated for Mange
This month our Hope Animal Sanctuary got an email from a woman seeking help for eight puppies. We told her it would be a week before we would have space for them, but never heard back. After a strange turn of events, we now have them safe and sound, and they’re getting the treatment they need for mange.
When the woman emailed, she said she had a stray come to her shop where she let her stay for the night. The next morning, there were eight puppies. She took care of them until they were about nine weeks old, but had other animals and couldn’t continue to feed them.
We replied and told her we could take them the following week, but she never got back to us. The next day, the director of the Leflore County Humane Society called and asked if we knew anyone by the name of the woman who sent us the email, who had also asked them for help.
Unfortunately, they were full at the time too, and also offered to take the puppies the following week, but the director saw the puppies and noted they had mange.
The next day, employees of Leflore County found seven of the puppies dumped near a county shop (we believe the caller kept one), who were taken to the Leflore County Humane Society, where the director recognized them. Since we already agreed to take them, and the humane society was overcrowded, we took them in.
The puppies have moderately severe mange, but are being treated now and within a few weeks they’ll be ready for new forever homes. Until then, they’re getting lots of love from our staff.
Thanks to your generous support, we were able to help these puppies and countless others. You can help us continue this lifesaving mission by making a donation.
