A passerby is being credited with saving the lives of seven puppies who were found on the side of a road in Ohio locked inside a storage container in below freezing temperatures.
“It was one of those days it didn’t get above zero. Luckily they had each other to keep them warm,” said Pat Gansen of Mason City Animal Control.
The puppies, believed to be part Boxer, were brought to the Humane Society of North Iowa and nursed back to health.
“They were wet, they were cold… but they were still alive,” Gansen said.
The dogs are thriving now, but Gansen said if no one had seen them, and they could have died in the cold.
“Our goal is to find these dogs loving forever homes where they’ll never be left on the side of the road again” Gansen said.
