Woman Discovers Abandoned Puppies During Errand Run

While running an errand to pick up cookies for her coworkers, TikTok user Rescuermg made a startling discovery. She spotted an abandoned box on the side of the road, and as she drove past, two puppies emerged from the box. Pulling over immediately, she exited her car and was greeted by the hesitant yet excited puppies, who came trotting over to her.

As an experienced rescuer, she knew the puppies needed help and had no intention of leaving them behind. After ensuring there were no other puppies in the box, she gathered the two pups and brought them to her car. The errand to buy cookies turned into an impromptu puppy rescue mission.

@rescuermg I just left work to go get some cookies for my coworkers 😭 I turned down a service road on my way back and thankfully spotted these two scurrying across the road. It appears they were dumped there with only that box for “shelter.” It was in the 30s-40s today with a chilly wind. They were sticky and gross. They’re emaciated and dehydrated. But they’re safe now. They’ve been bathed, fed, given dewormer, and 5 way shots. They could’ve been prevented if someone had only had their female dog fixed. I did search around for more puppies, but none appeared. #dogs #puppies #dogsoftiktok #puppiesoftiktok #puppylove #rescue #rescuedog#dogrescue #dogrescuecheck #spayandneuter #spayyourdog #bootsonthegroundrescue #whitewomanrescue #fixyourdamndog #southeastmissouri #missouridog ♬ original sound - Rmg

Taking the puppies home, she cleaned them up and tended to their hunger. Both puppies were filthy and famished, but they were visibly grateful for the care and safety they received. Over several days, the puppies' health improved, and their playful personalities began to shine.

Rescuermg found a foster family willing to take in the puppies, who were named Brownie and Blondie. After a visit to the vet and giving the foster mom time to prepare, the puppies were finally on their way to their new home.

While Rescuermg didn't expect to find puppies that day, their rescue was a welcome surprise, and everyone involved is grateful for her quick actions.

@rescuermg Puppy update: The girls have had a good day so far! Think we’ve finally got all the worms out 🙌🏻 maybe we won’t have as much mess to clean up (who are we kidding they’re puppies 😂) you can see how thin they really are now, but I’m sure they’ll be fat and happy before to long! I think they’re German shepherd mixes with maybe some husky thrown in? They like to sing the song of their people, which I’ve found both breeds tend to enjoy doing 😂 Please spay/neuter, be a responsible pet owner, get involved with your local rescue, and be a good human! #rescue #rescuedog #puppiesoftiktok #puppy #puppyplay #puppyplaytime #rescuepuppy #happypuppies #southeastmissouri #missouridog ♬ Happy Days - Lux-Inspira

As we witness heartwarming stories like this, it's essential to raise awareness about animal abandonment and the importance of responsible pet ownership. Abandoned animals often face harsh conditions and may not always be as fortunate as Brownie and Blondie. As a society, we must work together to support animal welfare and promote responsible pet ownership to ensure the safety and well-being of our furry friends.
