Officials tell News 8 that 11 pit bull puppies were found abandoned at the animal hospital around 6:30, Monday night. The pups were inside a box. Each weighed only several ounces and still had umbilical cords attached.They were discovered by someone walking in for an appointment at the hospital. Dr. Kirsten Mueller said they were found in good shape and are expected to survive.
They have been turned over to an animal rescue group called "Pitty Love Rescue." The group plans to take care of all 11 puppies until they are old enough to be adopted.
Anyone with information on these dogs is asked to call the Humane Society of Rochester at 223-6500.
