Puppy rescued by employees of restaurant finds home after posts on Facebook

Posted: Updated:

Good Samaritans came to the rescue of a puppy in Mississippi after it was dumped in a restaurant parking lot.
       
The puppy was found at a Waffle House in Tunica County just off highway 61.
      
Thanks to the kindness of strangers, and a little bit of luck, he now has a warm place to sleep.
       
By chance, Waffle House employees found the pup and took him in. They even gave him the name "Waffle!"
       
Waffle was then turned over to the Tunica Humane Society where his story blew up on social media.
           
Shelter employees then found out that Waffle may not have been the only pup abandoned.
           
Calls started coming in from others who found pups in parks and tossed over fences that looked just like waffle.
      
Animal advocates say, sadly, this kind of thing happens every day.  

"How anyone can load up a little family, take them out on a deserted road and put them out defenseless -- I'll never understand," said Sandy Williams of the Tunica Humane Society.

"A car drove up in front of the Waffle House and a guy got out. When the cars drove away, there was the puppy on the sidewalk by the restaurant all by itself," Williams continued.

A post on the Tunica Humane Society’s Facebook page says that Waffle now has a forever family that he will be joining soon.
