Gorgeous pups left at shelter in a box

See also

An entire litter of German shepherd mix puppies was left at a California animal control in a box.

The pups were likely an "oops" litter - the product of unaltered, unsupervised dogs.

Fortunately, the pups were not given away on Craigslist, or dumped alongside a road somewhere.

Instead, a rescue agency has already stepped in to help.

On Tuesday morning, Westside German Shepherd Rescue posted the following request to their followers on Facebook:

As Westside's van was going through the Central Valley picking dogs from various kill shelters who were out of time, the transporter came across these 7, 4-week old babies who were dumped at a shelter in a box. Mom was no where to be found. We ideally would like 1 or 2 foster homes for these babies until they are ready to go to their forever home in 4 weeks. If you can foster these adorable babies, please fill out an application.

The pups are safe - but they will need to find loving homes. Interested? Please fill out an application at WWW.SHEPRESCUE.ORG
