A litter of puppies is lucky to be alive after being left in a zipped up suitcase outside the Lexington Humane Society.
The four females and two males have been given lots of love and attention and are currently in foster care. They'll be up for adoption in a few weeks.
Officials at the Humane Society say people abandoning animals is a common problem. They say spaying and neutering pets is the best way to combat the problem of overcrowding.
The Lexington Humane Society is the largest open door shelter in the state.
October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month. The shelter says if you can't adopt a dog, there are still plenty of ways you can help out, including with your money or time.
