5 Puppies Dumped in an Empty Dog Food Bag

Updated: Apr 5, 2023

Another emergency, this time 5 puppies, less than a week old bottle babies, who were dumped on the side of the road in an empty dog food bag.

A bunch of people scrambled to help them. Tina at a Glance posted in the Animal Lovers chat, Kim Jackson coordinated with the person who found them, Steve Smedley drove to get them from Kim in Lake City, and Tracy Fosterling met him in Mandarin & took them to Erin Kupcha. MaryAnn McClure & Lindsay Kay were on deck to do the transport, but we waved them off when we weren't sure they would make it in time. Many other people offered to help. We appreciate everyone working together to help them.

A huge thank you to Erin Kupcha and her family for fostering, with a huge assist from her daughter Mackenna. Taking in bottle babies is a huge amount of work, and we are eternally grateful to Erin and McKenna for taking them in! Thank you to everyone who helped get these babies to safety!
