(Middletown, NY. May 26, 2015) – Chloe, Abby, Buddy and Leo were found living all alone in a hayfield in Sylvania, Georgia. With no mother dog in site, it is anyone’s guess how these four little ones were surviving. They were underweight and had obviously been on their own for most of their lives.

Rescue group Friends of Screven County Animals (FOSCA) of Sylvania, Georgia, partnered with Pets Alive in Middletown, NY to get the puppies to our sanctuary and on their way to a better life. The puppies are now at Pets Alive, a no kill animal sanctuary, and are doing very well adjusting to their new environment.

Executive Director Audrey Lodato says, “These puppies really need families that are willing to show them some kindness and patience. They have been through a lot and it’s natural that they will be nervous about meeting new people.”

Although the puppies are shy, they are very friendly when given time to adjust. They would love to find homes with families that have other social dogs, although that is not a requirement.

To find out more about adopting one of the puppies or to make a donation, please contact Pets Alive at 845-386-9738, visit or stop by every day between 10 am and 4 pm at 363 Derby Road, Middletown, NY 10940.
