In the city of Barstow, located in San Bernardino County, California, an evicted family loaded up their furniture and belongings for most of the day on Thursday. Before they left, several huge garbage bags of unwanted trash had been dragged to the curb to await garbage pickup on Friday morning.
But wait! Next to the pile of trash was a wire crate, and in it were two small dogs. Who could believe the dogs were literally thrown away as garbage? Fortunately, they were discovered by Good Samaritan, Allen Boartfield. Dream Fetehers: Project Rescue were called to help.
“Literally from trash to treasure,” the rescue posted on social media Thursday evening as both dogs were rushed to their partner veterinarian for emergency care and treatment. “We have confirmed the owners were evicted, and these poor babies were the last to be left on the curb with the trash.”
The two dogs have been named Treasure and Catch. The dark pup is Treasure, and the little white, male pup is Catch. Treasure is very matted and will be groomed and spayed. Catch is coughing, and he will have to wait until his condition improves before he can be bathed and neutered.
Never again, will Treasure and Catch have to worry about being left for trash.
