I can't believe someone would ever dump a dog, there are so many places that are willing to take them in if you do your research. Sadly, that's exactly what's happening in this Iowa forest though.

Amy Heinz, CEO of AHeinz57 Pet Rescue and Transport, went to this forest because people had called and told her they saw abandoned dogs in there. When Amy got there she said that "she saw dozens of glowing eyes stare back at her."

KARE 11 reports that officials are requesting that the location of the forest these dogs are being dumped not be specified because they don't want people going to look for them.

Amy said they were able to get 7 dogs out by luring them with Egg McMuffins (shout out to McDonald's) but there are still about 20 dogs still in the forest.

All of the dogs rescued had tons of ticks and are being treated for Lyme's disease. Many of them also had fresh wounds from fights.

If for some reason you have a dog, or any pet for that matter, that just isn't clicking with you or your family, do not dump your pet someone and leave them. There are so many places willing to help you out.
