Three Pups In A Pipe

No one heard the red, paint-worn pickup crunch across the gravel, and pull to a stop in front of the school. No one saw the driver pull a peach crate from the truck bed in the moonless night. He quickly scanned the road, and sure he was alone, hurried to place the crate on a grassy patch near the fence.  Then, without looking back, he drove away.

The cold and damp of night crept through the thinly covered crate, and one-by-one three sleepy puppies stirred. They began to cry, calling for their mother and the warm milk she gave, with cries that would never be answered . They huddled together and shivered through the night in a tiny ball of brown, black and white fur…

What will happen to the three pups when they take refuge in a drainage pipe outside Sandhills Elementary school?
