SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) - C.A.R.E. Rescue in Springfield is looking for a woman who abandoned a box of puppies at a dumpster.

Security video shows the woman driving up and setting the box by the dumpster. C.A.R.E. says Thursday is the day the trash service usually comes, so this could have been a tragic situation.

A neighbor grabbed the box before anything happened. The rescue says this kind of situation can be avoided.

“It’s really disgusting what happened the other day,” said Rob Hardy of C.A.R.E. Rescue. “If you think it is okay to leave a box of puppies at a dumpster, there are more serious issues at hand. There are no-kill rescues, even animal control would be a better option than leaving animals by a dumpster.

C.A.R.E. asks if anyone knows anything, to call the rescue. That number is (417) 875-6565.
