Puppy abandoned in plastic tub

Someone abandoned puppy in a plastic tub alongside interstate

On Tuesday, a puppy was sealed in a plastic tub and abandoned alongside Interstate-90 in Washington state. According to KXLY News, a truck driver had pulled off near the Fishtrap exit when she noticed that a clear plastic container was moving.

She was shocked to find a black and white puppy, along with food, toys and the pup’s waste, inside of the tub. The good Samaritan bundled the pup up and transported him to the SCRAPS Adoption Center. Shortly after the puppy’s arrival, the adoption center introduced Facebook followers to Charley:

This morning SCRAPS would like to welcome Charley into our Foster program. He was found inside a sealed plastic container on the side of the road. Thanks to a very watchful driver for pulling over and rescuing this cutie.

Charley is not currently available for adoption – he is going to live at a foster home and that person will have the first option for adoption.

SCRAPS is currently looking for information on the person who placed the puppy in the bin and left it beside the road. If you have any information please call SCRAPS’ main number at 509-477-2532.

    There are a lot of good, caring, concerned truckers that watch out for others on their long hauls… My husband followed in his father’s footsteps as a trucker for many years… and assisted a lot of people along the way… this wonderful Lady saved a life today… prayers for a safe haul ….

    “Sealed plastic container???” That’s the same as burying the puppy alive. Anyone who would do this does not deserve to live.

    Giant THANK YOU to the kind trucker who saved Charley – you are a HERO and saved a life. We need more people like you in this country – too many cruel animal abusers and not enough kind caring good Samaritans.
