Three puppies found in a box outside Goodwill

CHATTANOOGA, TN (WDEF) – The writing on the outside of the box said, "STUFFED ANIMALS".  The three puppies were crammed in a cardboard box that was securely taped to prevent their escape. There was no air ventilation for the puppies and they were covered in urine and suffered from heat exhaustion. The temperature in the box was estimated to be well over 100 degrees.

A woman saw the box moving and approached it. She tore open a hole in the top and discovered the dogs inside. The box had been left at a Goodwill drop off site near HWY 58. The dogs were over heated and covered in urine from a long period of time being inside the box.

All three dogs are being treated at McKamey Animal Center. It appears that they have been neglected over an extended period of time due to their poor condition. They are estimated to be between 9-11 weeks.

$200 REWARD offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for leaving the box with the puppies inside.
