Driver spots garbage bag moving at the side of the road, stops and alerts police

It’s a sad fact that in the U.S. every year millions of animals are dumped.

Some of these abandoned animals face a life on street, having to defend themselves and fight for food.

But for those animals that are dumped when they are barely out of the womb, their future is even harsher.

When a litter of newborn puppies were put in a garbage bag and tossed out of a car window, their future had already been decided by their cruel owner, until a motorist stops and calls for help.

Animal cruelty investigators from Harris County in Houston were called to the upsetting find at the side of the street.

The starving cold pups were in a garbage bag and had been left for dead.

Officers found seven newborn pups inside.

They were taken to Harris County Animal Shelter where they were wrapped in blankets and fed with a bottle.

They were so little they could barely open their eyes. If someone hadn’t noticed the moving bag at the side of the street, they would have all died.

A cruelty report was filed as officers appealed for anyone with any information concerning the person who dumped these poor pups.

See the moment these pups are rescued in the clip below.

This morning one of our Harris County Animal Cruelty Investigators responded to a call from a citizen who reported a bag of puppies being dumped from a car window on to the side of the road (south of 99 off of Old Mueschke Rd.). A cruelty report was filed and we are looking for more information from anyone who may have witnessed the action. The cold and starving puppies were brought to Harris County Animal Shelter and will be placed in temporary cruelty foster.If you witness animal abandonment, please take action by filing a cruelty report at (832) 927-PAWS or Provide video and photo documentation if possible.

I’m so thankful someone was paying attention that morning and spotted the moving bag. Such a sad case.

Please share to pay tribute to the animal heroes of this world who make such a difference to our four-legged friends.
