A heartwarming story of resilience and kindness on Wednesday comes from Missouri, where a group of environmental volunteers found an abandoned puppy curled up in a pile of trash.

The lucky pup was discovered by a team scouting for cleanup locations in the St. Louis area. The team, comprised of members from the Missouri Stream Team, Beyond Housing, and citizens from a tiered community, stumbled upon the young dog curled up amidst garbage bags and debris.

Thankfully, the story takes a turn for the better. On Wednesday, the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) shared on Facebook that Stream Team Coordinator Brian Waldrop stepped up to foster and has since adopted, the puppy.

thank you for saving this little guy! So thankful your crew was in the right place at the right time. Otherwise this little guy possibly wouldn’t have made it. Why are people so cruel and heartless? Thank you for saving and giving him a home

One image showed the small, white dog nestled amongst trash bags, while another showed the happy pup cleaned up and sporting a pink leash.

This story serves as a powerful reminder of the importance of responsible pet ownership. There are many resources available to pet owners struggling to care for their animals. Shelters and rescue organizations can often provide assistance with pet food, vet care, and rehoming, if necessary. Abandoning a pet is not only cruel, but it can also put the animal’s life at risk.
