Seven puppies who were found by themselves on an island in northern Manitoba—are being taken care of—until they can be adopted out.
Two men who live around Cross Lake—heard animals crying Sunday night—so they eventually checked —and found the puppies.
Debra Vandekerkhove with “Norway House Animal Rescue”–told Canadian Press that the puppies are about 3 and a half months old-and they were starving:
” So they gave them whatever food they could—and we already have food and supplies in Cross Lake–so we made arrangements for them to go pick up food. Then he and his friend just kept going back and forth–feeding them and making sure they had water–and getting them adjusted to people. One of the men also brought a dog house from his own back yard–so the puppies could have some shelter.”
The puppies were brought to rescue volunteer’s home in Cross Lake Wednesday night—and they’ve been playing with toys—enjoying regular food and water.
They’ve also been named after the seven castaways of Gilligan’s Island. (photo and video credit–Canadian Press)
They will soon be taken to Winnipeg–in the hopes of finding them some forever homes:
