According to the Western Pennsylvania Humane Society, some of the puppies are survivors of tornadoes that hit Mississippi. They were brought to Pittsburgh to help alleviate overpopulation in one of the poorest communities in the country.
Before being put up for adoption, the puppies will be vaccinated, micro-chipped, spayed and neutered.
The humane society will update their Facebook page and website when the puppies are ready for adoption.
