In a disturbing domestic argument situation, four puppies were rescued in Kansas City that had been covered from head to toe in paint. The puppies are now being cared for at the KC Pet Project.
According to the organization’s Facebook page, the nine-week-old puppies were rescued on Saturday night and brought to the shelter. A shelter supervisor stated a man had dumped a large jug of paint on the puppies.
“All four puppies at the home were found covered in thick latex paint. Our veterinary team worked late into the evening examining them for injuries and analyzing how to remove the paint. Sadly, the only safe alternative was to shave off all of their paint-laden fur. They are resting comfortably today and being cared for in our shelter’s veterinary care center. We’re hopeful that they will recover and may be placed up for adoption this week. We’re so proud of the work our team does every day to save innocent animals in our community from cruelty and neglect.”
Unfortunately, only chemicals harmful to the puppies could remove latex paint thus making the only solution left – to shave them. The four puppies, all pit bull mixes, are doing fine. On Monday, the puppies were all spayed and neutered and are available for adoption. Three boy puppies and one girl are looking for loving homes. They have been named Jackson Polluck, Firda Kahlo, Pablo Picasso and Banksy. Adoptions are first come, first serve, so if you’re looking for your new best friend, come on over and meet the puppies.
