When a woman was driving on the road in Texas, she noticed something peculiar on the side: a cooler. Still in pretty good condition by the looks of it, she decided to pull over and check it out. However, what happens next shocked her. She opened the lid of the cooler to find nine puppies crammed inside the little cooler gasping for air.
 

 
They were covered in urine and feces, struggling to breathe under the scorching Texas sun. Shortly afterwards, the unnamed passerby decided to call the Sulphur Springs animal control department, which eventually reached out to veterinarian, Karri McCreary, from Vet Ranch.

McCreary rushed to the scene to get the little pups, stating “they were still in the cooler” when she got there. McCreary mentions that “Someone must have stopped and found the cooler almost as quickly as they were dropped off there or else they would not have made it.” The puppies were identified as German shepherd puppies.

Thankfully, each and every one of the pups were healthy and safe when lifted from the cooler. “The puppies are strong and playful and they’re healthy,” McCreary says. After proper vaccination and medical care, the puppies will be lined up ready to go to loving homes.
