Puppies Found In Zipped Suitcase

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.

    Why waste a good suitcase? They should've just set the puppies out beside the road somewhere and kept the suitcase.

    At least they had the heart enough to take them to the shelter. They could have thrown the suitcase in the river or something stupid like that.

    Only a sick minded person would do something like this. I am glad someone found these puppies in time.

    The humane society should be allowed to put cameras in position that would film people who leave animals in danger on or around their property. With a little luck, they'd be able to get their license plate number and a good photo which could then be used to prosecute the scumbags. I'm glad the puppies are in good hands now, but I worry about the mother, with owners like that there's no telling what's happened to her. There is no excuse for stupidity, if you don't want puppies have your pet spayed or neutered. There are low cost programs available to help folks who can't afford a conventional vet clinic. These are things you should look into before getting a dog, or cat or anything else.
