Abandoned puppies get help

KENNEWICK, Wash. -- Six one-day-old puppies found dumped in Zintel Canyon Park in Kennewick are now fighting for their lives.

A jogger heard their cries and immediately called animal control.

They were cold and dehydrated and may not have lasted one more night outside.

Vets are now working to stabilize them by keeping them in an incubator.

Once they are released an animal control staff member will take them home to bottle feed and care for them.

"The biggest thing is to raise their core body temp back to a normal level, so we've got them - we have heating pads - not heating pads, but warmed towels, the hot water balloons," said Vista Vet Tech Kajsa Weaver.

It's possible the little pups will be up for adoption at two months of age.
