PREVIOUS STORY: 
The McKamey Animal Center is trying to find out who left a litter of puppies inside a taped-up box.


The organization is now offering a $600 reward for information leading to an arrest.


A woman called the center after finding the puppies at the Goodwill drop off site on Highway 58. The box was labeled 'stuffed animals.' McKamey officials said they're hopeful nearby surveillance video might show the person or people responsible.




Center workers say it was about 100 degrees inside the closed box. The three female puppies, between nine and 11 weeks old, were covered in urine and were suffering from heat exhaustion.


"It's horrible, people that don't care, just awful people and hopefully we'll be able to figure out who did it and be able to charge them," said Animal Service Officer Leslie Stokes. "It's very good how they're acting with us. It's very sad how we found them but they're doing great."


McKamey is treating the dogs and they'll be up for adoption once they're healthy.


The center is offering a $600 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of person or persons responsible.
