Coachella puppies doing well.

I'm so glad they caught the lowlife that dumped the poor little things. I wonder if they'll be able to reunite them with their mother.

Video Captures Woman Throwing Away Puppies Near Coachella

They were only three days old — but they're safe now 💛

By Lily Feinn

A 10-minute drive from the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, the most talked-about music event of 2019, seven puppies were fighting for survival.

The 3-day-old terrier mixes should have been with their mom. Instead, on Thursday, they were facing unspeakable cruelty — tied in a plastic bag and tossed next to a dumpster of an auto parts store.

A Good Samaritan, named John, noticed the bag while rummaging through the dumpster and brought it inside the store. An animal services officer collected the puppies and rushed them to the shelter’s veterinary team who was standing by.



“There is no excuse for dumping puppies,” Commander Chris Mayer said in the release. “Especially in today’s age when we or other shelters would be willing to get these animals to foster parents or rescue partners. This was a shameful act.”



The newborn puppies require round-the-clock care and constant bottle feeding — a task too strenuous for a city shelter with limited resources. So MeoowzResQ, a nonprofit organization devoted to kitten and cat rescue, stepped forward to help the pups.

The dogs have since been placed in foster care and are finally getting the love and attention they need.



After such a rough start to life, the foster families are doing everything they can to help the pups grow up strong.

1. Animal Control

went to her house. They found 30 dogs inside! And all the dogs were removed.

Time for some consequences for this evil woman!

2. I wonder if the animal authorities can re-unite mama with her pups?

Mom is probably extremely stressed, too.

5. Mama may be too neglected to feed the babies

without it endangering her own health.

3. Those puppies are extremely cute

I'm glad they are doing well.

How heartless and evil one has to be to throw them in trash? What has the world come to?

4. It would not have been difficult for her to find a home - and fast - for those puppies.

I have no idea why she thought it was best to dispose them to die.

6. That thing had 38 dogs in her home. Who knows how many were pregnant? It's despicable

and I don't care if she is "mentally ill."

7. I agree. It was a despicable act because of its cruelty and the ease of finding homes for puppies.

10. Thank you, my friend.

It doesn't feel like much what with all of the evil in this world, but I do what I can and highlight the stories that give me hope that we aren't completely lost as a species.
