This helpless family was abandoned in the middle of nowhere on a road in Brazil. If that wasn’t bad enough, they were even tied up inside of a bag. At first, it looked as though it was just the mom dog, until rescuers found the poor puppies in the bag.

An animal rescuer from Lagoa da Prata, Brazil called Josiane Almeida was notified about the situation. She didn’t waste any time to go pick up the dogs and take them to a safe place.

Almeida was horrified. “Some of the worst scenes of mistreatment I’ve ever witnessed! If you do not have the strength do not see! Mother sick with puppies tied in a sack and thrown in the middle of nowhere! It’s been there for quite some time! Puppies dizzy and weak due to shortness of breath and mother bleeding a lot! What cowardice! What a sin but God will charge this I’m sure! See until the end!”, she said.

Josiane shared a video of the poor dogs, it has been viewed over 5 million times. Thousands have showed their dismay at the situation.

The poor mama dog was wary of the rescuers at first. But after she realized that they was there to help, she immediately warmed up to them. Only one of this dog’s puppies was outside of the bag, while the other three were trapped inside with their mom.

Nobody knows who did this. It’s obvious that they were with an owner that did not want them anymore. The puppies were all fatigued at first, but after eating and drinking they improved.

Josiane brought took the family to the vet to have them all checked out. The puppies were in good condition, but their mom had a malignant tumor that needed to be taken care of immediately.

Josaine appealed to Facebook for the family’s treatment, and was surprised with people’s generosity. The vet bills were covered with donations, and the mama dog is now going through chemotherapy.
