It's is nearly unfathomable to imagine how a cruel person could throw puppies away in the trash. Discarded as if they were nothing, these pups were left to die.
Luckily, Tampa police came to the rescue. After an neighbor's call, officers discovered a teeny, nearly newborn pup in the trash. Scared, the mama dog was on the trash bin frantically trying to get at her baby.
Soon, other pups were discovered under a nearby shed. The image of horror and cruelty is hard to take. Why would these pups be thrown out as if they were worthless?
Bay News 9
reports: ""We don’t know if she was successful in getting the other three out of the can and under the shed, but she sure was trying to get that last one out," Tampa police spokesperson Andrea Davis said."
The investigation is still ongoing, but Fox 46
says the police have narrowed down a person of interest.
Now, mama and her pups are resting safely at Hillsborough County Animal Services and they will be placed for adoption when they are ready and healthy.
We hope all of these darlings find loving, happy homes that treat them with the utmost care! Stay tuned for pupdates.
