A man was out for a stroll in Essex, England, one afternoon when he noticed an abandoned crate on the side of the road. He was shocked to find 20 puppies inside.
The fluffy little puppies were all huddled up together in the crate. It appeared they were waiting for someone to find them. The kind man quickly sprang into action and contacted the RSPCA (The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals). The rescue immediately sent people to collect the puppies and get them to a vet as quickly as possible.
“When I was told how many puppies there were, I actually thought there was a mistake,” Sian Ridley, an inspector with the RSPCA, said in a press release. “I couldn’t believe that someone had abandoned 20 puppies! They were all quite scared and timid when we arrived and it was just heartbreaking to see them all huddled in the one cage — they looked a pitiful sight.”
The vets discovered that they were probably from a few different litters. They think they’re some kind of poodle mixes. They were all pretty small and the vets were concerned they might be sick. Luckily, though, most of them were actually really healthy despite being abandoned.
The RSPCA suspect that the puppies were from a puppy farm.
Since there were so many puppies, their rescuers decided to name them in alphabetical order: Albert, Boris, Casper, Dylon, Elenor, Freddie, Guinever, Hank, Irene, Jeremiah, Kaleb, Luna, Morris, Nevel, Oliver, Peter, Quinton, Rupert and Saffron.
Many of the puppies have already been offered homes by members of the vet staff who have been caring for them since they were rescued. Currently, they are in foster homes and will head off to their forever homes once they’re ready.
Good thing they were found and will now go on to have wonderful lives with amazing families.
“Times are tough at the moment, but abandoning tiny puppies like this is so irresponsible and cruel. Please, please never abandon your pet but ask for help before things get so desperate,” Ridley said.
