- Someone left a box full of puppies near a shelter in Tampa, U.S.
- These six abandoned pups were in a bad condition
- But loving people treated and fed them back to health, and look at them now!
The Humane Society of Tampa Bay recently a special group of six abandoned puppies. They had been dumped inside a cardboard box by the side of the road, and were not in very good condition.
These situations sadly happen too often. Baby dogs or cats are abandoned by the hundreds, and if it were not for organizations such as the Humane Society of Tampa Bay, many would not survive.
These animals can go through much suffering. The ones in Tampa had a quite serious skin condition, which had removed much of their fur.
Although they were a bit sluggish, the pups responded well to the human care they started receiving almost immediately.
The puppies got medicated baths to clear up their skin, for approximately one month. They also had antibiotics and food to help them get their strength back.
The pups were neutered and spayed and put up for adoption. At least these dogs were taken to a local shelter, which made it possible for someone to take care of them. Others are not that lucky.
These puppies now look completely adorable!
