The Battlefords Humane Society is thankful for generosity.

Last week, 20 puppies were found abandoned in a field and brought into the shelter.

Michelle Spark, the shelter co-ordinator, said the dogs are keeping workers very busy, but there has been plenty of help.

"The phones have been ringing off the hook," Spark said. "There's been so much support. We've had financial support from across Canada and down into the United States."

Spark said the shelter has received a "tremendous" amount of financial donations. This weekend, volunteers from outside the province showed up to help the puppies.

"It was a whole family," she said. "It was a mom and a dad and their kids and they flew down from Manitoba and they booked a hotel room here. They just said they wanted to help out."

The 20 puppies will soon have a new home. All but two of the dogs have been adopted.

Most of them are staying in the province, but some are moving to Alberta and Ontario.
