Each of these puppies weighs less than a pound and is only four days old. The cause of their injuries, which resulted in burns, remains unknown at this time.
Upon their arrival, the veterinary team at The Animal Foundation promptly attended to the puppies’ paws by applying medicated ointment. Subsequently, they were placed in a designated kitten nursery for their care.
The shelter’s staff has mentioned that while the nursery is already attending to 36 cats and kittens, the puppies require constant care and special accommodations. Therefore, arrangements will be made to ensure their specific needs are met.
The puppies will remain under the shelter’s care until they reach an appropriate age to be eligible for adoption in the future.
