“It is hard to believe that someone would leave puppies in a carrier on the side of the road on a sweltering day like today, but they did,” the Portage County APL posted on Facebook alongside a photo of the puppies.
The APL says these pups were found in a carrier near the Sheetz and Ravenna High School area.
“They were filthy, hot, thirsty and hungry,” the APL's post continued.
Although the puppies are not yet available for adoption, the Portage County APL is asking anybody who recognizes the puppies or information about the situation to contact their office at 330-296-4022.
“We're grateful they are here and safe,” they wrote. “Thank you to the people who found them and brought them in. This is why we are here.”
