CEDAR CITY – Cedar City Animal Control is searching for the owner of nine puppies abandoned in a cardboard box along Mountain View Drive last week.
They were all found in excellent health and are currently being held at the Cedar City Animal Shelter. After five days, they will be released into the care of the H.A.R.T. of Utah rescue organization and eventually adopted.
Officer Zac Banz said the puppies are believed to be an Australian Kelpie mix, approximately 6 weeks old.
Authorities are trying to locate the owner, who is facing multiple animal cruelty charges. This is an open investigation.
If you have any information, please contact Cedar City Animal Control at 435-586-2960 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
UPDATE: The individual who found the puppies and reported the incident to animal control, Crys Giglio, and her family have decided to adopt one of the puppies, a male named Digger. The others will be available for adoption via H.A.R.T. in the coming weeks.
