A good Samaritan is being credited for saving the lives of four puppies in Guilford County, North Carolina. The good Samaritan was driving when they noticed a suitcase on the side of the road.
They stopped their car when they noticed that the suitcase was moving. They reported that the suitcase was zipped, except for one part, according to WGHP.
Inside, the good Samaritan found 4 small puppies, something that would shock anyone.
Wanting to do the right thing, the good Samaritan dropped the puppies off to Guilford County Animal Services the morning of September 17.
“This was a first for us,” shelter officials told The Miami Herald. “These puppies will now be medically evaluated and hopefully up for adoption or rescue soon.”
Guilford County Animal Services shared the story of the four puppies and the good Samaritan on their social media page, which has now gained nationwide attention.
All four puppies are girls, are around 10 weeks old, and are possibly Labrador/pit bull mixes, according to The Miami Herald.
The animal services staff named them Tumi, Samsonite, Stowaway and Carion, after suitcase and traveling names.
Guilford County Animal Services posted an update on the puppies on their Facebook page.
While they are doing well, it will take some time before the puppies are adopted out, due to the lack of socialization, according to Guilford County Animal Services.
They are currently foster-only, but the shelter is asking everyone to keep an eye out on their Facebook page for updates and information on when the quartet can be adopted out to their forever homes.
