trashcanNine weeks after being rescued from a trash can, four puppies are going to safe and loving homes.

In May, Animal Law Enforcement officers discovered the puppies at Highland Heritage Regional Park in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Four of the five puppies survived and were placed in foster homes while they were nursed back to health.

This past weekend the puppies finally got to go home with their new adoptive families. The puppies’ fosters even made “going home” bags for the puppies that included all their favorite toys and treats. Over 60 applications were received from people wanting to adopt the puppies. The families were selected through a special process.

Lilo, Bridgette and Gus-Gus all went home with their families on Saturday. Brutus’ adoptive family decided they weren’t ready to handle a puppy, so the shelter will be looking over the other applicants to place him in a good home.
