Adorable stray puppies given first ‘euth’ injection saved at last moment

In a rural Georgia animal shelter, no one came to adopt five adorable and healthy puppies. They had been on stray hold for eight days, and their time on earth was ending at 3:45 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon. The Australian shepherd mixes were unwanted puppies thrown away as if their lives didn’t matter. Neither one had been given a name. Their innocent lives had already been given the first ‘euth’ injection prior to a poison filled syringe to be jabbed directly into their chest walls.

Their story, however does continue:

“We wish we were never born. We were laid on a cold concrete floor and given the first injection to sedate us. Everything began to feel weird. We couldn’t stand, we felt sleepy and then we fell down and were totally sedated. The vet then came into the room to inject the second shot which would stop our hearts. That didn’t happen. A miracle took place. Our voices were heard.”

Office Manager, Kristin White at McIntosh County Animal Services shared the story of the puppies with Animal Aid USA. Volunteers rushed to the shelter, and from this day forward two lucky puppies will get to grow up and enjoy life – just as it should be. To donate please click here.

According to the ASPCA, new data shows decreases in shelter intake and euthanasia of homeless dogs and cats. Although there are still regional disparities, an estimated 3.2 million shelter animals are adopted each year which is up from 2.7 million adoptions in 2011. Please don’t shop for your next best friend. Be sure to spay and neuter.

Jett was saved yesterday within 45 minutes of his scheduled death time. Kristen White got his plea out to us. She was his voice! Jetts voice had been heard loudly and he is now safe with us. See something, Say Something. Take cues from Kristen.

With the post of the heart pounding pups saved from euthanasia yesterday we failed to post the other lucky ones who got out alive thanks to Kristen White getting me videos and pics immediately. All five pups due to be killed at five pm yesterday we rescued by our army. It all started with getting word to us with their plea and that plea came from Kristen. If you see something, do something. Kudos to Kristen for being that voice!
