Malnourished mother dog and young puppies abandoned in a box

Someone abandoned a malnourished mother dog, and her young puppies, in a cardboard box which was left in the middle of a field in Missouri. The heartbreaking situation was recounted by the Wright-Way Rescue Admission & Medical Services Campus on Thursday morning.

The animal welfare agency posted images of the abandoned family, writing:

This momma dog and her babies were found in a box in an empty field.
A farmer was driving past an empty field early one morning when he saw a head pop up from a box. He stopped and got out to investigate. What he found was heartbreaking. An emaciated momma dog and her two-week old puppies had been left in a broken box in the middle of nowhere. They were all dehydrated, and one of the pups had blue lips.

The organization coordinated transport for the dog family and writes:

Momma and babies were sent to a loving foster home right away and they are on their journey to recovery. We are so profoundly grateful for all our maternal fosters and our donors.
