- McIntosh County, Georgia, USA -
The nonprofit Friends Of McIntosh County Animal Services is offering a reward in exchange for information leading to the identification and criminal conviction of the person(s) who abandoned a mother dog and her puppies.
A father and son in Townsend found the mama dog struggling while pulling a crate with her four puppies stuffed together without any room to move around.
The family was found on the side of a Georgia road and the Good Samaritans took them to the shelter.
The organization, run by volunteers, wrote in a Facebook post: “We know there is evil in this world and this just further proves that! This poor mama dog watched as someone put her four young puppies into a wire crate and then tied a blue belt around her collar and then tied the belt to this crate and left them down a dirt road!!!.”
The shelter also wrote: “Thank you to the kind souls who brought them into MCAS. Everyone has since been fed, watered (they were very thirsty), vaccinated, dewormed, bathed, and deflead.”
McIntosh County Animal Services Director Marianna Hagan said: “They were covered with fleas, with ticks and feces. They smelled really, really bad.”
The link below will show a video in which the puppies look happy and playful.
Mom and babies are headed to the Fancy Cats and Dogs Rescue in Virginia this weekend.
Before they are ready for adoption, they still need a lot of medical procedures, and the rescue is asking for donations via PayPal at email@example.com.
If anyone has information regarding this callous abandonment, please contact the shelter. Thank you!

Many thanks to the good people who saved this family!
