A heartwarming story has emerged after a bus driver discovered two tiny, innocent puppies left in a box at a bus stop outside of the city. The driver quickly alerted the local animal shelter, and staff members rushed to the scene, unsure of how long the puppies had been abandoned. Upon arrival, they found two female puppies, who were dirty, wet, and in poor condition, but surprisingly friendly.


Sadly, it is not uncommon for people to abandon female puppies, as they often don’t want to spend money on sterilization. However, the shelter staff was determined to change the lives of these puppies and began feeding them right away. After a failed attempt to clean the dirt off with regular puppy shampoo, the staff decided to take the puppies to a beauty salon for a proper cleaning.


The puppies, named Leya and Mia, underwent a beauty treatment that included a special cream, scrub, mask, and shampoo. The transformation was astounding, as they emerged looking clean and adorable. The shelter staff then took them to the vet for a checkup, where it was determined that they were about three months old. The puppies were microchipped and treated for fleas, ticks, and worms. Unfortunately, they also had demodicosis, which required further treatment.


Despite their health issues, Leya and Mia remained happy and playful. Their rescue and transformation serve as a heartwarming reminder of the importance of animal shelters and the care and attention they provide to animals in need. Leya and Mia are now healthy and happy, eagerly awaiting adoption into their forever homes.

This story is a testament to the fact that every animal deserves love, care, and a chance to live a happy life. We extend our gratitude to the shelter staff for their dedication and love towards Leya, Mia, and all rescued animals.
