The four-week old Shepherd mix puppies, who were picked up by Indianapolis Animal Care & Control, have been placed with Rescue Farm in Poland, Indiana.

IACC says one of the puppies is very tiny with a severe respiratory infection. 

Staff at IACC had started the puppy on antibiotics and give him fluids to re-hydrate him to save his life. 

The puppies will not be available for adoption for at least another month. They must be at least 8-weeks-old and in good health to be spayed/neutered.

 

 

The firefighters also say, while they enjoyed taking care of the puppies, please do not drop animals off at fire stations. They aren't equipped for animal rescue.

Instead, take animals to IACC, the humane society or try to find a home for them yourself.

If you're looking for a furry friend, IFD encourages everyone to check out IACC which is running an adoption special for Valentine's Day
