Nine black and white puppies that were rescued after their owner attempted to bury them alive Saturday at a North Dakota construction site have made their way via animal rescue groups to the Twin Cities, the Jamestown Sun in North Dakota reports.

The fragile pups ultimately landed at several metro rescues, including Happy Tails, Coco's Heart Dog Rescue in St. Paul and Rescue Pets are Wonderful in Anoka, the Sun reports. The dogs ultimately will be put up for adoption.

The Sun had no further details about who had attempted to bury the dogs or how exactly they were saved.

Volunteers and rescue-organization staffers are bottle-feeding the puppies, which are getting a lot of attention. The Facebook page of one group that fights animal cruelty had more than 1,200 likes on its image of the dogs – and nearly 450 shares.

It was not immediately clear what breed the dogs are, the Sun reports.
