The four Chihuahua puppies were found abandoned in a shoebox left on a car in West Valley City, Utah, with a note that read "Free, mama past (sic) away, born on Friday." Luckily a woman spotted them and rushed them to the Humane Society of Utah.
Rescue workers could tell that the puppies desperately needed care, so they took a chance and gave them to Kit, a recent mom who was new to the shelter. Her own kittens had all been given away, but she was still able to nurse. "We did what we thought may be the best for the puppies to try and feed," Utah Humane's Deann Shepherd told The Dodo.
