ROYAL OAKS, Monterey County (CBS SF) – A $500 reward has been offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a person who abandoned six puppies at a plastics recycling plant in Royal Oaks Wednesday, Monterey County SPCA officials said.

SPCA Humane officers found six Australian Shepherd mix puppies abandoned near a fence off Live Oak Road Wednesday.

The four male and two female puppies are approximately 2-and-a-half months old and were found hungry, dehydrated, flea-infested and suffering from foxtails and worms, officials said.

Humane officers believe that the suspect drove to the recycling plant’s fence line and tossed the puppies over. It appears they were left there recently.

The SPCA has been calling the six little dogs Grover, Elmo, Bert, Ernie, Lily and Zoe.

If anyone has information about the case they are encouraged to contact the SPCA at (831) 373-2631 or (831) 422-4721, ext. 213.

    I think they mean 2 and a half MONTH old puppies. 2 and a half year old puppies are DOGS.

    So sad that someone would do this. SPCA would take them for nothing.

    What sort of warped person does something like this? My thoughts are with these puppies. Their early life experiences have been bad, but they are loved.

    What a tragic commentary on the behavior of man. To leave the innocent little angels to suffer and die. Really appalling and sad. God bless these babies with the wonderful homes they deserve!

    The person who did this is findable. Had they left them at a humane sociery it would be no questions asked. As it is, if they are found, they should pay every dollar it will cost for the care, cure, treatments and cost to put thest guys up for adoption.
