Everyone would probably react if they unexpectedly discovered five puppies in their own backyard. Craig Mcgettrick also had an experience that was the same.
He and a friend were in England removing trash from a garden when they came across an old mattress. To remove the bed, they had to lift it, but they had no idea what lay beneath it.
He wasn’t expecting to see five tiny puppies under the mattress. After discovering the puppies, Craig contacted a nearby animal shelter and shared some pictures on Facebook to help the animals find new homes.
However, a startling discovery about the tiny puppies he would make only a few hours later would completely alter everything.
Back in 2017, it was a typical day. Craig was assisting with his neighbourhood cleanup. They were cleaning when they discovered something he would never have expected!
Craig discovered five of what he believed to be tiny puppies or possibly kittens under a mattress.
McKittrick told The Dodo, “Those were probably the only two options I knew of. We thought someone had dumped them knowing we were going to remove trash. “.
Craig decided to bring the five small animals along. He contacted the neighbourhood animal shelter and asked them to look after the infants. Craig, however, posted pictures of the adorable little “pups” on Facebook to find a new home before giving them to the animal shelter.
Martin Hemmington, who founded the National Fox Welfare Society, eventually acquired the pictures after they had been widely disseminated.
He picked up the phone and called Craig as soon as he saw the pictures. not because he wished to adopt the puppies, though.
Hemmington posted on Facebook that “we were contacted by a lovely lady called Beccie through our Facebook Page; Beccie had sent a few photos asking if the babies in the photos were indeed fox cubs.”. “We verified that they were for sure. Beccie informed us that they had been delivered to a Liverpool rescue facility as puppies and not as fox cubs. “.
Five young fox cubs were what Craig initially believed to be puppies.
According to Paul McDonald, a local rescuer known as The Fox Man, “people frequently mistake fox cubs for dog puppies when they are cubs because they don’t initially look like foxes when they are foxes.”.
The little fox cubs were made to be somewhat hungry by Martin Hemmington, who reached out to Paul to get them to begin beeping for their mother.
After that, Paul carefully returned them to the spot where Craig had discovered the fox cubs.
