She Had Spent Her Days Hiding In A Trash Can, Avoiding People. But She Wasn’t Living Alone…

A woman saw a stray dog and tried to rescue her, but she’d run away every time someone tried to catch her. She eventually called Hope For Paws, a rescue organization, to get some help. The dog kept running into an enclosed property, so Hope For Paws got permission to come in to get her. They found her living in a garbage can that was lying down sideways with the top propped open like a little shelter.

To their surprise, they discovered that she had a little puppy living with her in there too! It is unusual for dogs to have just one puppy, but sadly they found out that a few days earlier, kids had stolen her five other puppies. The volunteers from HFP knew they couldn’t let this dog and her puppy live in these horrible conditions any longer. They sat down next to them and tried to gain their trust. They fed them and eventually were able to start petting them. They named the mama Zoe and her baby, Meadow. After sitting there for 30 minutes, they picked them up and brought them to the hospital for treatment. Now Zoe and Meadow are living with a foster and awaiting their furever family!
