ASBURY PARK, NJ – A mother dog and her newborn puppies are treated after New Jersey rescuers found them starving and dehydrated in a stuffy small room in Asbury Park earlier this week, said the Monmouth County SPCA .

According to the refuge on Facebook, another law enforcement agency was looking for someone in the area when they heard the cries of the puppies in distress and immediately called the SPCA.

The young mother and her 10 puppies were discovered in the small space heated to over 90 degrees without anything to eat or drink.

The starving dogs must have eaten pieces of mattresses and other debris in the room covered in urine and feces, the shelter said.

Many puppies were severely dehydrated and needed immediate medical attention from the group’s veterinary staff, they said. Some dogs even had intestinal parasites.

The SPCA branch said it “will continue to monitor the mother and her litter until they are cleared and we can find a foster family.”

The organization asked anyone able to promote to communicate by email [email protected].

The shelter and rescue group is also seeking donations to help support the treatment and healing of this family of dogs and “hundreds of other animals we will see this summer.”
