Two Sick Puppies Take Themselves To A Human Hospital (Video)

Two emaciated puppies in desperate need of food and medical care took matters into their own “paws” when they walked into a hospital for humans in Corpus Christi, TX. Their rescue turned into a community coming together with help from the hospital, a news crew and an animal shelter.

When the puppy pair walked through the glass doors of Christus Spohn Hospital Shoreline last week they headed directly into the lobby where they waited patiently for help, alongside their human counterparts.

Jim Cato M.D. and his staff took pity on the skinny littermates and brought them into an office area where the dogs were given bits of sausage and bacon to ease their hunger. Next the staff directed their attention to the Yellow Pages, as they set about the task of finding an animal rescue group that would accept the puppies.

The Gulf Coast Humane Society Corpus Christi agreed to take the puppy pals, if someone would bring them to the shelter. By that time a news team from Kiii TV was on hand reporting the incident, so they decided to give the dogs a ride.

Dr. Cato and staff said their goodbyes and loaded the puppies into the back of the news crew vehicle. A few minutes later, the sleepy dogs were placed in comfortable crates at the Humane Society. They will be examined by a veterinarian, but expectations are high they will be ready for adoption in a few weeks.
