A $5,000 reward has been offered after a heartbreaking discovery was made inside of a dumpster in Nottoway County, Virginia, earlier this month. The reward, offered by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), is in conjunction with the January 6 finding of six abandoned puppies who were tossed into a dumpster on Davis Mill Road.

The 10-day-old puppies were inside of a green-and-white Southern States Complete Sport 24/20 dog food bag – two of the young pups did not survive, the others are being cared for by Sanctuary Rescue. According to WRIC News, two weeks earlier, four newborn puppies were found abandoned in a dumpster on Bible Road in Crewe – 11 miles away from the spot where the six puppies were found.

PETA Vice President Colleen O’Brien:

“At least one person out there stuffed defenseless puppies into a dumpster in the dead of winter and walked away. PETA urges anyone with information to come forward immediately so that whoever left these dogs to die can be held accountable and stopped from hurting anyone else.”

Anyone with information is urged to call the Nottoway County Sheriff’s Office at 434-645-9044.

    Some people just don’t deserve to walk on this earth. How could anyone throw away these newborn puppies! Where’s the mama dog? Whoever abandoned these pups should die of a slow painful death. Disgusting human trash!

    WTF is wrong with these POSs??? Take the unwanted puppies to a rescue group to be rehomed (lots of people want puppies)….. AND spay/neuter your pets….. we don’t want litters becoming trash…….

    There are spots in Hell reserved for these POSs to burn forever for their cruelty…… hope they lead miserable existences, suffer and die terrible painful deaths alone, afraid, and worst of all unloved……

    Hope the surviving puppies all find wonderful furever homes where they will be beloved family members.

    RIP precious little treasures who never got to be puppies and love and be loved…… I know you are in Heaven. Please look for MacKitty and he will welcome you into his “snuggle buddies club”!!!!!!!!! May you RIP among his loving friends…..

    Someone in Nottoway County VA knows who is doing the Horrific , torture to helpless newborns, and What has become of the mother in both of these cases!!! It is time to speak out and turn this Psychopath in or the cycle will continue… Fact is if they would go and seek help prior to “dumping” these little pups, I am sure a rescue out there would take them… This / These Vermin are “OVER THE TOP EVIL”
