"Finch, Fox and Falcon" were all trending in the right direction on Monday, according to an update shared by Ramapo Bergen Animal Refuge to its Facebook page.

The female, Finch, was doing well enough to be released into a foster home Monday night, Jersey Pits Rescue confirmed to New Jersey 101.5.

Both males remained at Oradell Animal Hospital with "diarrhea and coughs" but were eating on their own with the hope that they might cleared to leave by later in the week.

Dog lovers had contributed to online fundraisers for the trio's care, which RBARI said had made a difference.

"It takes an army, and you are truly the foundation allowing us to intake such challenging medical cases," the rescue group said in its Facebook post.

There have been no public updates on whether officials found any information on who might have left the dogs to fend for themselves outside last week.
