A bunch of five puppies were found in a cardboard box that was left near a busy highway in County Longford, Ireland. They were seen playing and tumbling around without realizing the perilous traffic passing by just a few feet away from them.
According to a recent Facebook post by the Irish Society of Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ISPCA), these puppies’ lives were almost cut short before they even had a chance to begin. Fortunately, a concerned community member noticed them and immediately contacted the ISPCA for assistance. Thanks to their quick thinking, the puppies were rescued and given a second chance at life.
The ISPCA rescued some adorable puppies and brought them back to their facility for some much-needed care. After a bath and parasite treatment, the vets were happy to see that the puppies were relatively healthy. Although they were a bit young to be separated from their mom at only 10 weeks old, the rescuers were impressed by their playful and happy personalities. Carmel Murray, the head of communication at ISPCA, mentioned that the puppies didn’t seem to be affected by their traumatic experience and had sunny dispositions that were highly contagious.
After making a full recovery, the adorable puppies were given the opportunity to roam around the shelter and partake in some exciting activities. According to Murray, they had an absolute blast chasing each other around and playing with a wide range of toys. The little pooches particularly relished the extra affection received from the wonderful animal care team and volunteers.
In no time, every pup was able to find their ideal companion. With their permanent families, this set of dogs can finally relax. According to Murray, “They are currently having the time of their lives in their new, affectionate homes where they are being shown love and given attention.”
