A St. Louis charity organization found a 2-week-old baby pit bull while collecting donations near a Walmart in Ferguson, Missouri.
The Big Brothers Big Sisters organization says their mission is to “provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.”
That mission is seemingly not exclusive to children.
On Wednesday, Shain Derienzo and his coworkers took on a new challenge when they found a newborn pup in a donation drop box, Fox 4 reported.
“Me and my coworker, we open up the bin and we're cleaning out the clothes and we hear a little bit of a squeak, and just like normal we thought it was a kid's toy making some squeaking noise in the bins, you know, we were moving stuff around and stopped for a second so I'm unloading a few more bags, a few more bags and then the sweatshirt started moving and out comes a little baby pit bull,” the worker told the news station. “So yeah it was crazy, it was weird, it was unbelievable.”
The pup was taken to a hospital and has already been adopted, KTVI reported. It is unknown at this time how the baby pit bull ended up in the collection bin or how long it was there before being discovered.
