Box of Puppies Dumped at Humane Society in "Deplorable Condition"

A box of puppies was dumped at the Amarillo-Panhandle Humane Society, according to information from the organization.

The Humane Society posted on Facebook saying that a box of puppies was being sold for $20 each. When the owner could not sell of the dogs, he dumped the box at the Humane Society.

The puppies were being kept in what the organization described as "deplorable conditions" and the Humane Society used photographs of the dirty box to bring the issue to the public's attention.

In a Facebook post, the Humane Society highlighted the issue, writing, "This is more than a dirty box, it is a despicable reminder of how important it is to spay and neuter your pets, and how senseless some people are."
