Two puppies, no more than three-months-old, were discovered on Saturday morning thrown outside of the shelter gates at Nottoway County Virginia Animal Shelter at the site of the dumpsters. Angry, dirty and disgusted, the shelter staff has called out the animal abusers who caused the suffering of two innocent puppies.
“To the human that dumped the precious babies at the dump – what is wrong with you???? You dumped those two babies right outside our gates at the dumpsters. You have had them for 10 to 12 weeks but couldn’t hold onto them for a couple more hours or call us?,” Sheila posted on the shelter’s Facebook page to bring awareness to the plight of the puppies.
One of the puppies was injured as the men collecting the trash had not noticed nor expected the dogs to be there.
“If you even care the boy is fine. The little girl was injured when the guy came to dump the big dumpsters. So not only did you dump them, you caused one to be injured, a man to be upset that while doing his job, he accidentally injured that precious little girl and you cause me to lay in that trash… and climb under a dumpster at a landfill.”
The two puppies are Border collie and Labrador retriever mixes. The male, now named Lance weighs ten-pounds. His bonded sister, named Deedee, will be spending the weekend at the veterinarian and weighs nine pounds. Both puppies will be heading to rescue on Monday at which time Deedee will continue with her medical treatment.
