On Saturday, September 8, 2012 Railroad workers found three puppies nailed by their paws to the railroad tracks in Albany, NY. The puppies were only 3 weeks old. They were taken to Mohawk Hudson Humane Society in Menands, NY where they were given life saving treatment for dehydration, malnutrition, infection and the injuries to our paws. Unfortunately one of the puppies didn’t make it.
On November 9, 2012 Mohawk Hudson Humane Society announced that any interested forever families should write an essay as to why they wanted to adopt Hudson and Pearl. On November 30, 2012 Hudson met his forever family, the Nash’s and Pearl met her new family, the Kittle’s.
Hudson and Pearl are doing very well in their new homes. They are in training to become Therapy Dogs so they can visit other Amputees in VA, Children’s and other hospitals. To follow the story of Hudson and Pearl visit some of the links below:
