After first hearing about what happened…my heart sank. Then it continued until I learned the amazingly GOOD NEWS that ALL lives were saved and the puppies who required medical treatment will make full recoveries.
I can't imagine how horrifying the scene must have been immediately after the crash. Our gratitude for saving these dogs' lives goes out to two groups – the New York State Police and Finger Lakes SPCA. These precious lives were saved because of their service and commitment.
On Jan. 24, a truck travelling along I-86 in southern New York crashed and overturned. Its contents: 104 puppies.
State troopers were quick to arrive on the scene, and once they realized what they were dealing with, they contacted the local SPCA in Bath, New York. The SPCA was able to examine the tiny passengers on location. They assessed the puppies, determined they were all going to be safe, and transported the pups to the shelter and a nearby veterinarian’s.
Five of the puppies sustained minor injuries, one suffered a broken jaw, and another had a fractured leg. They are all set to recover just fine.
While the shelter was happy to recover the animals, their space was inadequate to care for all of them. “We’re used to dealing with animal emergencies, [but] we’re a small shelter. We normally house maybe 60 cats and 30 dogs, max,” Vicki Mosgrove, executive director of the Finger Lakes SPCA, said.
Thankfully, they had more space than usual due to all of the holiday adoptions that have taken place over the last few months. Eighty-six pups remained at the SPCA while the other eighteen stayed at the Bath Veterinary Hospital.
Even though it must have been very shocking for all of the dogs to experience the crash, it was impossible to tell based on their attitudes. As soon as help arrived, they were cascading over one another to lick their rescuers and caretakers.
