A mother and her 12 pups were discovered living in a culvert in Jerome County recently. The animals are being cared for by the Idaho Humane Society, and you can help provide assistance if you wish.

The Idaho Humane Society shared details on the successful relocation of a mother and her 12 puppies from a culvert in Jerome County. The animals were removed with care by Trapping Catching South Central Idaho Assistance. They appear to be in good health.

The puppies are approximately three weeks old. The mother, whose name is "Queen," needed immediate veterinary assistance upon being located. The pups are currently in foster care being evaluated. They will be offered up for adoption when the time is appropriate and they've been medically cleared.
