Harris County Animal Cruelty Investigators received a call from a concerned citizen that witnessed eight puppies being thrown from a car window.
Animal Cruelty Investigator Michael Allan rushed to the scene to rescue the puppies.
When he arrived he found eight cold and starving puppies in a black garbage bag on the side of the road.
He told KHOU 11, “And you see a little black bag in the distance and you hope that’s not it. Then, second thought is you hope they’re alive.”
The puppies were newborns and had not even opened their eyes yet. Sadly, one did not make it.
The world had not been very welcoming to the little pups, but that was about to change.
Allan took the puppies back to Harris County Animal Shelter for medical care. All were bottle-fed and cuddled in warm blankets by the staff.
“A cruelty report was filed and we are looking for more information from anyone who may have witnessed the action. The cold and starving puppies were brought to Harris County Animal Shelter and will be placed in temporary cruelty foster,” posted Harris County Animal Shelter.
