Puppies found in moving van head to Chicago, Illinois, to begin rehabilitation
—Last month, 28 French Bulldog puppies were found by a Texas Department of Public Safety officer packed tightly in plastic crates in a moving van in Texarkana, Texas. The Humane Society of the United States was asked to help find placement for these dogs, and connected local authorities to Chicago French Bulldog Rescue, a rescue partner in Chicago, Illinois. Today, the surviving puppies were transported to Illinois by the Chicago French Bulldog Rescue to continue to receive rehabilitative care and eventually seek adoption.
It was 121 degrees inside the back of the moving van, where the puppies were found without access to food and water. They were suffering from heat-related illnesses. The Humane Society of the United States provided financial assistance to pay for the care of the puppies before they could be moved to Chicago French Bulldog Rescue. HSUS is grateful to the City of Texarkana, the City Attorney, the Texarkana Texas Police Department, the Texas SPCA, Texas State Troopers, the Bowie County District Attorney and the Chicago French Bulldog Rescue for their considerable efforts to rescue these puppies from the cruel conditions they were confined in.
