Abandoned Puppies Found On Toll Road Get Homes
AURORA — Three of the nine puppies found abandoned on the side of the Ohio Turnpike in Streetsboro on Feb. 19 had new homes as of Feb. 21, according to Euclid Veterinarian Clinic Receptionist Ravi Khemsara.
“We have six more,” he said last week. “We have to make sure they are well before we send them to homes.”
A Pennsylvania woman discovered the litter the evening of Feb. 19 along the toll road. According to Aurora Police Lt. Rob Hagquist, officers met the woman and took a report about the incident.
“Officers responded to the McDonald’s in Aurora where the woman who found these puppies was. She wasn’t exactly sure what to do with them,” he said. “At the same time, the woman had already made arrangements to take them to a veterinarian.”
According to Khemsara, the puppies were in “good shape” when the clinic employees picked them up in Aurora. According to the Euclid Veterinary Clinic’s Facebook page, they were found in a box. “The puppies were crammed in plastic boxes, and the boxes were taped shut,” stated the page
