PHOENIX — Two puppies were found unresponsive and cold at a snowy campground in Northern Arizona at Canyon de Chelly by a National Park Ranger.

According to a press release, the Park Ranger was walking through the campground when she saw an empty box.

"When she opened the snow-covered box, she found two puppies that were non-responsive and cold to the touch," a press release stated.

The Park Ranger scooped them up in her jacket and carried them to her ranger station in an attempt to resuscitate the dog pups.

She reportedly placed the puppies, still wrapped in her jacket, in a soup pot and placed them on the stove top.

"She then turned on the oven, which could create a gentle source of heat that could transfer to the pot and warm the puppies until they woke up," the press release noted.

It's unknown how long it took for the weeks-old puppies to warm up, but when they did, they began crying.

The puppies were taken to Arizona Animal Welfare League (AAWL) in Phoenix and over the last few weeks, they received ongoing medical care.

They have been named after Disney's Frozen characters, Elsa and Anna, because that they were found in the snow.

Both Anna and Elsa are getting spayed/neutered and will be available for adoption on Monday, December 16.
