GREENSBORO, N.C. — After being rescued from inside a small drain, a litter of puppies will soon be ready for a new home.

On Monday, we checked in on the puppies that were saved just a few days ago in Greensboro. They were friendly, energetic and playful.

Volunteers at Juliet’s House Animal Rescue say four of the five dogs walked about 40 feet into a small drain underneath someone’s driveway.

The group called Guilford County Animal Control to help get them out on Friday. After four hours, all of the dogs were saved.

One of the puppies in the drain needed immediate help.

Another puppy needed an emergency surgery for a gash on its neck.

On Monday, the dogs were doing well. The two puppies that were in the most dire need are named Carra and Afari, after the officers who saved them.

“I can’t thank them enough,” said Nancy Bozarth, another volunteer at Juliet’s House. “They saved their life. They just went above and beyond.”

Juliet’s House is collecting donations to cover the cost of the emergency surgery. The group is also accepting applications to adopt the dogs. For more information head to their website, julietshouse.org.

The group has also been posting updates and donation link on its Facebook page.
