The McConn family of Project Freedom Ride had heard of two abandoned dogs, but weren’t sure what to expect when they hit the road. Looking out the car window, Jen and Roman McConn sadly saw a dog and her puppy cradling on a cold piece of concrete.
Meanwhile, inches away, lay the lifeless body of another pup, where apparently the canine family had been left to their fate.
Despite the daunting sight, the McConns reached out, hoping to help. Surprisingly, the dogs were open to the kind gesture and even seemed to understand that the family was there to lend a hand.
Jen McConn remembered that moment as something incredible. She told The Dodo:
“It was amazing. It was as if they knew right away that they were safe.”

After alerting animal control, the McConns were granted permission to take them to their rescue center, where they could receive proper medical attention.
With the help of Becky McArdle (the local dog advocate), they arranged a visit to the vet, and everyone was relieved to find that Milo and Mina (as they decided to call them) had no suffered only minor ailments when alone.
To give them a fresh start, they were bathed before handing them over to their foster families. The difference in their behavior after the bath was unmistakable: Milo and Mina were rolling in happiness before snuggling up to warm up. Jen McConn watched as Mina could finally relax now that she no longer had to protect her little one.
Until early March, when they can start looking for a permanent home, this little family will stay with their foster family until then.
Their extraordinary bond of courage despite these difficult circumstances is truly inspiring, something that can bring hope even to those going through difficult times today.
