The puppies, Rhodesian Ridgeback mixes, were found about six weeks ago, neglected with no hair from severe case of mange. A Good Samaritan found the box and brought them to the shelter.

Thanks to the Humane Society, the puppies have all received excellent care through nutrition, socialization, medication and rehab.

They are now ready to find their forever homes. Five puppies — Nathan, Nora, Nadiya, Nancy, and Nattie — will be available Thursday. A sixth, Hope, will be available Friday.
