It’s hard to believe that anyone would abandon an innocent animal in the middle of nowhere, but sadly that was the case recently for these tiny puppies left in a box near a trash can.
A Ukrainian woman named Olena Pyanov is running a YouTube channel called Love Furry Friends, where she films the rescue of stray and abandoned animals. She recently came across a heartbreaking case.
The story of the two four-legged friends, Betty and Richie, began in a small box – but ended in a warm, cozy home.
According to Love Furry Friends, the tiny puppies were found in a box after someone dumped them there.
A photo of the poor animals ended up on social media – and it didn’t take long before Olena from Love Furry Friends intervened.
She immediately went to the scene to rescue the pups, who were cold and hungry. No one knew how long they had been in that card box – and no one really knew how they ended up in the box in the first place.
But the good thing is that they were immediately taken to Olena’s animal shelter, given a nice warm bath and lots of much-needed food! They soon also found a new, loving friend: Olena’s foster dog Mimi.
And now, the dogs are in good hands. Thanks to the Love Furry Friends organization, Betty and Riche have now been given a second chance in life!
After posting their story on social media, people reached out and both dogs were adopted and welcomed into new homes. Wonderful!
Olena does everything on her own. From finding the animals to taking them for a checkup and helping with their treatment. She helps dogs and puppies find their forever homes and pays whatever cost she incurs herself. She is also helped by the generous donations of her benefactors.
The Ukrainian native has doubled down on her efforts since the war broke out in her country. As people flee the country, sometimes they abandon their pets. And that is where Olena comes in, making sure the pets are taken care of!
