I have never really understood how people can be cruel to their defenseless pets.  Some people have no regard for the life and safety of animals.  The life of 17 helpless puppies could have been cut short had it not been for a woman named Karen Read.

Read was driving on State Park Road in Indiana when she saw a person dump a mother and her puppies along the road.  She was not able to identify the person who dumped the puppies on the road but did notice that the person was in a gold SUV.

Information About Adopting the 17 Dumped Puppies:

The puppies are Lab mixes, and range from 6 to 12 weeks old.  They are safe at the local shelter and are currently awaiting adoption.

I am unsure whether these puppies have all been adopted.  If you are interested in adopting the abandoned puppies, they are currently at Lakeshore PAWS in Valparaiso. 

If they are still available, you must first fill out an adoption survey.

Important reminder to pet owners: If you or a loved one owns a pet that you can no longer afford or care for, do not abandon them.  There are local no-kill shelters and humane societies that will willingly provide a home for your unwanted pets.

In my opinion, the abandoner should face many years in prison for dumping 12 helpless puppies on the road.  What do you think the abandoner’s punishment should be?
