Kayaker Rescues Newborn Puppies Dumped In River

Kayaker Rescues Newborn Puppies Dumped In River

There are countless ways people can give up unwanted animals without any consequences or risk of punishment, which is why police officers are heartbroken by the cruel way someone tried to get rid of six newborn puppies.

Last month, a kayaker looking to enjoy a beautiful day on a river in Uxbridge, Massachusetts discovered a tied up grain bag bobbing in the water. The kayaker raced over and grabbed the sack from the water and discovered six newborn puppies that miraculously were still alive.

“These puppies were tied up in a grain bag and left for dead after being dumped in the river near River Rd,” the Uxbridge Police Department wrote in a post to Facebook. The tiny newborns were alive, but they weren’t in great shape so the quick-thinking kayaker called Uxbridge Animal Control. Shortly after, an animal control officer arrived and took them to receive care.

“Uxbridge Animal Control Officer responded to the scene and took possession of the puppies. They are all doing well, considering the circumstances, and we believe they will all survive. The puppies are currently being kept together, and are being cared for by a professional until they are able to be adopted,” the police explained.

“If you have any information that could lead us to the low life that could commit such a heinous act, contact Officer Benjamin Smoot at Uxbridge PD,” the police wrote in the post.
