Six puppies found in dumpster

Posted: Updated:

WOODFORD COUNTY, KY (WAVE) - A litter of puppies was dumped in a Woodford County dumpster, according to police.

The puppies were discovered Monday morning behind the Midway Lofts complex in Midway, Kentucky, located between Frankfort and Lexington.

A neighbor told police he heard noises coming from the dumpster and thinking the noises might be a baby he jumped inside.

In the dumpster he found six newborn puppies, but only three were still alive.

While the three puppies may have survived the traumatic incident, the vet said all three will have to be euthanized because they have cleft palettes.

Police are investigating the case. If you have any information you are asked to call the Woodford Animal Control at (859) 879-0598.
