Kayaker rescues puppies dumped in river

Posted September 26

— Police in Uxbridge, Massachusetts are asking anyone with information about abandoned puppies rescued by a kayaker over the weekend to come forward.

Police say the puppies were tied in a grain sack and dumped in the Blackstone River.

Animal control officer Kevin Sullivan said whoever dumped the dogs had plenty of options.

"I can't even fathom the idea of it. I mean, they literally could have called anybody. I mean, go drop them off at a police station, animal control officer. Anybody would help these guys. I can't ever think of an idea when it would be okay to do something like this," Sullivan said.

    I hope they find the mom. These guys are on a matter of days old and it's a miracle they are alive. They've been with their mother and fat little babies. She's probably having a fit trying to find them. Who would do such a thing? so horrible.
