A dozen stray dogs and puppies were rescued at a local garbage dump in a far north part of the province, Monday morning.
Calgary-based Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society – AARCS, and New Beginnings Animal Rescue Society in Northern Alberta, endured the 10-hour journey to reach the location of the 48 puppies and adult dogs in frigid conditions.
“Many of the puppies are emaciated and badly dehydrated as quite a few were struggling to survive by scavenging for food and shelter at the local dump,” according to the Facebook post.
“Upon intake, all of the animals were examined, vaccinated and de-wormed by our incredible medical team with the help of our dedicated volunteers! Each animal was given a warm blanket or bed, fresh food and water and lots of love,” the post added.
