JUPITER FARMS, Fla.-- A Jupiter Farms based agency is in need of donations to support three puppies brought in from Bahrain.

According to Brittany Symonette  with GTS Husky Rescue, the dogs were removed from a zoo in Bahrain and were under abusive conditions.

"They were in a zoo where they weren't receiving much food at all and very dirty water," she said.

According to the non-profit, a person purchased the dogs from the zoo and brought them back to the animal rescue in South Florida.

"I think it's completely inappropriate that people would even pay to see animals in these conditions is outrageous to me," Symonette said.

The dogs are all suffering different health problems right now. One has a broken jaw, another has pneumonia and the last one has a skin condition.

To take care of them, Symonette said the rescue agency is in need of $10,000 in donations.

The puppies are currently in foster care until they're healthy enough to be adopted, although the one with pneumonia is being quarantined to protect other dogs.

The no-kill shelter takes in huskies from all around the world and is currently caring for dozens of dogs.
