Second Chance at Life for Puppies Dumped in Fort Dodge Three Months Ago
A second chance at life has been found for a bucket full of puppies abandoned by their owner and saved by the efforts of area animal activists.
Around the beginning of September, a phone call was placed to Webster County Dispatch about a plastic storage tub that was filled with puppies, left to die by the river. All of them were still at the nursing stage.
A huge undertaking was put into motion following that phone call that involved Webster County Animal Protection, Moffitt Animal Shelter, Harmony Vet Clinic and Kim Colwell of Peace Creek Animal Sanctuary.
“We work close with the shelter in Fort Dodge and Moffitt has always been amazing,” Colwell said. “It was Miranda (from Moffitt) that reached out and asked if I could just take some, but she is so full I was like ‘if I’m taking some I might as well take all. So we are just working together on this one.”
Colwell reports that three months later, all of those puppies survived and have been adopted by new loving homes.
