These poor puppies found in a gravel pit on a construction site almost tragically lost their lives. Luckily, one of the workers saw the pups at the last second and stopped the crew from crushing the hidden babies. After being saved from construction machinery, the puppies ran into a new threat.
The puppies shivered while waiting for the local animal control to collect them. They assumed someone abandoned all three of them in the ditch overnight. Who could be so cruel to such helpless, precious creatures?!
The animal control workers immediately recognized the puppies found in the gravel pit were suffering and rushed them to the local Humane Society. Those pups finally had a fighting chance!

The next day, a fourth puppy appeared in the pit and was rushed to the humane society to be with its family. Just like the others, the last pup was an Australian cattle dog.

Once evaluated, the professionals at the Humane Society said that the puppies were all dehydrated and underweight. Even worse – they all tested positive for parvovirus. This highly contagious disease quickly attacks a dog's intestines. If untreated, the mortality rate is 91%. So these little guys might've got to the vet's right in time.

The fluffy siblings were monitored 24 hours a day to ensure speedy medical intervention if necessary.
Unfortunately, intensive care for parvo costs thousands of dollars. The Humane Society reached out to the community for donations for the poor puppies found in a gravel pit. The organization shared that most shelters put dogs with parvo down because of how contagious it is.
On social media, the shelter said, "the Humane Society for Tacoma & Pierce County is ready to provide these puppies with the rigorous and long-term care they need to make it out alive."
