On August 3, Austin Pets Alive! pulled 19 puppies from Bastrop, Texas. "Someone had dropped them off at Bastrop Animal Shelter claiming that they had been left on his/her doorstep," says Rebecca Reid from APA!.
The puppies, which could be from multiple litters, are now three weeks old and in need of around-the-clock feedings and care. They were being bottle fed milk replacement every two to three hours, and will be on canned food until they are six weeks old. At that point, they can transition to dry kibble.
As of Friday afternoon, all of the puppies have been placed in foster homes, says APA!'s Faith Wright.
