A woman finds a plastic container on the lawn and is shocked to know who is inside
When Amanda Hood saw a transparent storage bag lying on the lawn of her workplace one morning, she didn’t think much of it at first. As Calhoun County Humane Societyrelief coordinator, she was used to things being dropped off overnight.
“I thought it was donations at first,” Hood told The Dodo. “Until I see something movement.”
Hood walked towards the a plastic container to take a closer look. As she got closer, she noticed two small holes punched in the top of the bag and saw steam building up inside.
Hood carefully removed the lid and was shocked to find not one small animal in the bag, but nearly a dozen tiny puppies.
“There were 11 puppies all squashed in a tiny little tote,” Hood said.

No one knows exactly how the puppies got there, but Hood thinks they weren’t there too long before she found them.
“They were probably only there for about an hour,” Hood said. “Because with those two little holes for ventilation, I don’t think they would have lasted any longer.”
Hood quickly brought the puppies to the Humane Society for further examination. The puppies were estimated to be around 5 weeks old and luckily all 11 were in good condition.
After their initial screening, the little family quickly settled into the shelter and started doing everything puppies usually do.
“They eat, sleep and like to be held,” Hood said. ” Those are the sweetest babies.”
Unfortunately, the Calhoun County Humane Society is filled to the brim with rescues, which means they don’t have the space to keep the family of puppies.
“There seem to be a lot more animals that need homes than there are people to adopt them here,” Hood said.
To give the puppies a better chance of being adopted, the humane society transported them to Home forever dog rescue in Illinois, where they are currently awaiting foster care.
Calhoun County Humane Society staff members are already missing cuddling the puppies, but they are happy to know that all 11 puppies will soon have the loving homes they have always deserved.
