Macaroni & Cheese: Dogs dumped from truck find foster home
GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - The Greenville Humane Society says two yellow labs that were dumped from a truck have found a foster home.
Representatives from the shelter say a truck dumped the labs and ran over one of them last week. After bystanders took the dogs to get help, it was determined one was suffering from a broken leg, and both tested positive for heartworm disease.
Employees say both dogs are around nine-years-old. They named the male dog “Macaroni,” and the female dog, “Cheese,” because they go together perfectly.
Macaroni stayed by Cheese’s side after being dumped and never once left her alone.
Both dogs were diagnosed with kennel cough while they were in the shelter.
On May 18, the shelter said the two dogs found a foster home. Their new foster family saw their story and were immediately in love.
The shelter shared video of Macaroni and Cheese enjoying the sunshine outside as they recovered.
The Greenville Humane Society says between both dogs’ treatments, their facility was looking at a cost of $6,500. They said the community has showed a huge outpouring of support for Macaroni and Cheese.
“We cannot thank each and every one of you enough for the compassion and support you’ve shown these sweet pups,” the shelter posted on Facebook on Wednesday. “Even though they’ve had a very difficult week, and likely difficult lives, they both have begun to trust our staff and realize that we’re here to help them, not harm them.”
