Three puppies were rescued from the Muslim Brotherhood before they were used as “puppy bombs” at a protest in Tahrir Square two weeks ago. The group planned to dip the dogs in gasoline and set them on fire and using them against their opponents.
Robyn Urman, a pet rescuer in New Jersey with Pet ResQ Inc, was contacted by Mervat Said, an animal rescuer in Egypt, about puppies Cleopatra, Cairo, and Egypt. This is not the first time this has happened, and not all the dogs were rescued. Now Urman’s group is trying to find a loving home for the dogs.
Cleo and Cairo and Egypt were rescued in Egypt, these three puppies were going to be burned by the Muslim Brothers in Tahrir today in the clashes between the them and the Egyptian army… Ten cruel bearded men gathered more than 20 puppies and start pouring gasoline on them and throw them at the army. These flying fire balls were puppies that used as weapon [sic]. We only could save these three poor babies. All are 12 weeks old. Weighs a whopping 8 lbs and loving life in the USA. Great food warm bed and loving kisses.
