Puppies Found Covered in Paint

A woman who is a veterinary technician at the rescue organization called KC Pet Project was about to head home one Saturday night when an unusual call came into the facility. Police officers in the area had found four small puppies abandoned on the street. Not only were they wandering the street, but they were completely covered in paint, too. The story begins a little earlier, however, when those police officers were called to the scene of a domestic violence incident. A man had arrived in the home and threatened to hurt the puppies. When officers arrived, the man had begun to do just that by dumping a large container of latex paint on the dogs.

The paint had begun to dry on their fur, so it was important to get the eight week old puppies help as soon as possible. Animal control officers were called to the scene and quickly transported the dogs to a local shelter so staff could work to remove all of the paint from their fur. Because the dogs were so tiny, staff was concerned about using chemicals to remove the paint from their fur. So, they improvised and decided to shave their fur. It was a painstaking process that took over four hours. They had to keep the little puppies calm and still so they could carefully remove their fur and all of the paint, too.

They were able to remove most of the fur, except the tops of their heads, and then gave the puppies a warm bath. They quickly fell asleep after all the excitement. Luckily, all of the pups recovered from the paint and did not suffer any long term health problems from their ordeal. Better yet, there have been applications pouring in for the puppies and three of the four have already been adopted into loving homes!
