PULASKI COUNTY (KATV) — Four puppies that survived an animal dumping in the Little Rock woods are now up for adoption.
The Humane Society of Pulaski County posted a video of the puppies on their Facebook page Friday.
At the end of January, KATV reported about eight puppies that had been dumped in a sealed container near Faulkner Road and Barry Lane.
Jimmy Ramsey, a hunter, was headed to clean up his deer stand when he saw the container. On the way back, he recalled hearing noises and opened the container to find eight puppies, four of which were already dead.
"At least let them loose to have a fair chance at someone stopping and picking them up," said Ramsey, who called the deaths cruel and torturous. "Instead they were going to pretty much suffocate them and starve them to death."
Ramsey took the remaining puppies, which were in bad shape, to the Humane Society of Pulaski County where they have since been nursed back to health.
The humane society says the puppies, some sort of Labrador retriever mix, are doing well and ready to find their forever homes. They were estimated to be roughly six-weeks old when they were initially found.
