Four days ago, a tiny puppy was found inside of cardboard box that was taped closed and left outside of the gate of a Texas animal shelter The City of San Antonio Animal Care Services Facebook page posted images of the puppy, writing:
Our ACS team knows to be aware of their surroundings, especially when it comes to boxes and bins. A staff member noticed the box with the note on it and went to check it right away. She opened it to reveal one cute little puppy anxiously jumping around!
Adding reassuring news about her health:
The puppy was immediately taken to the clinic to be examined. Luckily, even though she was found outside in the cold and we don’t know how long she was there, she was in overall good shape.
The puppy, dubbed Charlie, is being taken in by the Animal Defense League of Texas; she will be available for adoption as soon as she is old enough.
The shelter reminds everyone that abandonment of a pet is NOT the appropriate thing to do:
Although Charlie is safe now, whoever dumped her did not follow the correct process for getting help for a pet – owned or stray. In her time spent in the cardboard box, who knows what could’ve happened to threaten her safety.
This is a reminder for those who find themselves unable to care for a pet: please do the right thing. ACS is here to help and there are processes in place to keep you and the pet safe. If you are helping a stray pet, please make a report with 311. If you need assistance with an owned pet, please reach out to us.
