YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – All ten puppies that were found on the side of the road in a trash bag on November 18 have died, according to Save a Mom Pregnant Dog Rescue, which tried saving the pups.
A person affiliated with the organization took to Facebook Wednesday night, angrily calling out the person that dumped the dogs.
“The last 6 days I have worked at correcting your mistake. They have been kept warm, bottle fed, given fluids and med’s to help their intestinal tract from not receiving the colostrum from their mother like they should have right after birth. And they almost started to thrive, but something internally started to shut down, suddenly causing all ten to die. I guess this is no concern of yours and you may even laugh, but that is something that you have to live with and not me [sic],” the post read.
WKBN reached out to Save a Mom Rescue but was unable to reach someone there Wednesday night.
The puppies were found in a bag on the side of Liberty Road in Youngstown, and they were taken to the Mahoning County Dog Pound. One of the puppies had already died. The others were later transferred to Save a Mom in Cleveland, which deals with rescuing pregnant female dogs.
The puppies, which were not more than a few hours old when they were discovered, were put into other litters to be nursed back to health. The puppies were said to be doing well after they were rescued, but their health rapidly declined.
