The note, written by a nameless homeless man, explained the heartbreaking circumstances that led him to rescue the puppies. Having regularly fed a local stray dog, he discovered the mother had tragically been hit by a car. Determined to provide the puppies with a chance at a better life, despite his own homelessness, he left them at the shelter's doorstep with a heartfelt plea for help.

The note read, "Please help! I found these puppies sadly after noticing a local stray dog that I would often feed when I could, dead by the road. She had been hit by a car. I knew from feeding her that she had puppies somewhere and after searching where I would usually see her I found them. I'm sorry for leaving them like this but I myself am homeless and cannot afford to care for them. My heart shatters for them and their mother. I just want them to be given the chance their mother like myself, was never given. Please do not think poorly of me but it felt wrong leaving them alone in the cold waiting on a mother that would not be coming home. Sincerely, nameless man."
