One man’s trash is another man’s treasure, which is why one Texas woman pulled over when she spotted a cooler on the side of the road that looked as though it was in perfect condition.
The woman was thrilled at her luck when she pulled over, but when she opened the lid to check and made sure nothing was inside, she realized someone had stuffed nine newborn puppies into the blue cooler and left them to die on the side of the hot road under the hot sun.
The babies were covered in their urine and feces and were left no food, so the woman decided it would be best to call the Sulphur Springs animal control department so the puppies could get the care they needed. “I just drove over there and got them,” said veterinarian Karri McCreary. “They were still in the cooler.”
“Someone must have stopped and found the cooler almost as quickly as they were dropped off there or else they would not have made it,” McCreary said. “And these aren’t like Chihuahua puppies. These look like German Shepherd puppies.”
Luckily, after further examining them, McCreary determined they were all healthy despite how they were discovered. “The puppies are strong and playful, and they’re healthy,” McCreary said. And once all nine puppies get all their medical care and vaccinations, she plans on finding them loving homes with families who will give them a life free of neglect and abuse.
