Puppies Saved From Death by Tupperware

A Channel 13 News cameraman films the rescued puppies playing on the floor of the Pet Wellness Center in  Port Deposit, MD.  By the way, camera-phones really suck.

I was just minding my business at the vet clinic today when we received a phone call from Ruff Life Rescue.  Apparently, on Monday, a litter of eight 7-week-old puppies was found sitting on a Baltimore street sealed in a large rubbermaid container.  Monday, being one of the hottest days of the summer so far with stifling humidity, especially in the city, it’s a small wonder that the puppies didn’t die from the heat and lack of ventilation.  Let me repeat this, someone left a litter of puppies in a sealed rubbermaid container on a city street during one of the hottest days of the year.  No matter how many times I say it, it still sounds unbelievable.

Anyway, the puppies were, fortunately, found in time, went through BARCs rescue and spent the night at Everhart Vet in Baltimore before finding their way to Ruff Life.

We work with Ruff Life to help provide veterinary  care to many of the animals that make their way to them.    I took the phone call from Bree Masenoir, who runs the rescue, to simply make an appointment to check out the newly saved litter.  But a few minutes later, she called back, saying Channel 13 news out of Baltimore wanted to come out and interview her, the vet I work for, Dr. Lisa Twardus, and the puppies.

So what was a simple morning turned into a tv news interview in the waiting room.  For anyone interested, the story will appear on the 5 and 6 o’clock news on Channel 13, and be posted on their website shortly thereafter.  The puppies are doing well, by the way, and appear for all intents and purposes, to be emminently adoptable.  One more time, someone left a litter of puppies in a sealed rubbermaid container.  Sorry, just can’t get over that level of cruelty.

Oh yeah, the puppies, who are apprently celebrities enjoying their 15 minutes of fame, will be on Channel 45 news morning show tomorrow with updates every so often on how their morning is going.  If you happen to be up at 5:30, check it out as well.  And anyone looking for a new addition to your family, the puppies will be available for adoption from Ruff Life soon.
