For many, especially animal lovers, the prospect of abandoning pets by the side of a road is unimaginable and cruel.
Yet hundreds of helpless animals find themselves on the street without any food or water every day. They often go days without eating before they're found, and some are never found at all. Luckily, the five puppies in the video below were rescued by incredible people from the Michigan Humane Society (MHS).
After receiving a call about a plastic container on the side of the road, the MHS went to investigate. Inside they found five tiny puppies that were presumably left there to die. Rescuers quickly took them back to their facility for treatment.
Just wait until you see how they're doing today!video-player-present
It breaks my heart to think about the number of animals that find themselves in similar situations each year.
Luckily, this story has a happy ending. One of these pups has been adopted and the other four are in foster care awaiting forever homes!
