The Humane Society is asking for donations to help the two sick hound mixes recover from demodex and malnutrition. Demodex is caused by mites and causes dogs to lose large patches of fur.

Staff at the Humane Society named the puppies Dodger and Scout. They are about 15 or 16 weeks old.

The  rescuers say the puppies were most likely dumped on the highway.
