(Meredith) – The Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society (AARCS) saved 48 puppies and dogs found freezing inside an Alberta town’s dump.

According to the AARCS’s Facebook post, the puppies and dogs were homeless and were scavenging in a dump for survival.

“A rescue crew set out for their long journey in the wee hours of Monday morning...traveling well over 10 hours just to reach their destination. Eagerly awaiting them, were a total of 48 puppies and adult dogs who were in need of rescue from the blistering cold that was chilling their bones.”

The AARCS, along with New Beginnings Animal Rescue Society, said one of the female dogs had 12 puppies around her, but one of them had died. Many were weak with hunger and dehydrated.

Once the animals were rescued, each was examined, vaccinated, and de-wormed by medical staff. They were given a warm blanket, fresh food, and water.
