MENANDS, N.Y. -- The Mohawk Hudson Humane Society has been awarded $25,000 for its work with the railroad puppies.
The money is awarded by the Petco Foundation and the Ellen Degeneres grant. The Humane Society was one of 4,500 applicants, and the top eight with its story about the railroad puppies.
The railroad puppies, named Hudson and Pearl, were found on railroad tracks in September 2012. They were found with severe injuries to their left and rear paws. Both puppies are now living with new families, and are both doing well.
