INCLINE VILLAGE — Seven puppies left for dead in a trash bin have found permanent homes after being nursed back to health by volunteers at a Lake Tahoe facility.
Melissa Shaw of the Pet Network Humane Society in Incline Village says the pups were adopted Thursday.
The puppies were discovered Oct. 29 in a trash bin behind a Radio Shack in Susanville, California, with their umbilical cords still attached.
Officials believe the four females and three males were only a couple days old when they were found.
The dogs are a combination of Golden Retriever, black lab and German Shepherd.
Karen Russell, who adopted one of the puppies, told KOLO-TV the dogs may have had a rough start to life, but have “hit the lottery” by ending up in loving homes.
