Look What Leftist Dakota Access Protesters Just Did to These Puppy Dogs
The Dakota Access protesters not only left a mess — one that ironically endangered the environment — they also reportedly left puppy dogs behind out in the cold.
“It was a hectic week as law enforcement officials worked to clear the Oceti Sakowin protest camp in North Dakota. As officers moved in, and protesters moved out, garbage wasn’t the only thing abandoned.
Two dogs and six puppies were found and rescued at the main Dakota Access Pipeline camp by Furry Friends Rockin’ Rescue. Those with the rescue have been working hard to catch all of the animals left behind at the camp — and they’re not giving up on these abandoned pets.
“Extremely sad — being these guys were left behind. But we offer, Furry Friends offers hope. I mean, there’s so much hope within Furry Friends as far as these puppies finding homes,” Tiffany Hardy said.
The Furry Friends Rockin’ Rescue group plans to go back and save these animals, but they say that it’s difficult to find and catch them because of the loud noise from the heavy machinery being used to clean up the protest camp.
“It’s a mess down there, so it’s really, really hard to find these animals and get them,” said Julie Schirado.
If the group can get enough volunteers to help and if they are allowed in, they want to go there every weekend to try and get all the animals out that they can.
“We have a couple cases of mange. We might have had some, I know we’ve had some problems with claws that haven’t been clipped before,” said Hardy.
Dogs that have been rescued by the group have, of course, suffered from being left out in the elements with things like frostbite on their ears and patchy fur.
“If they stay with us, we help them find their forever home. If somebody has left the dog behind and they’re looking for that dog, we hope they’ll contact us so we can help them find their dog,” said Schirado.
The first thing group members said they need to focus on is making sure that the pups are warm, fed and healthy.
