A deputy found a pair of puppies in a book bag on the side of the road early Sunday morning, according to an incident report.
One of the puppies “was already deceased,” according to an incident report, while the other was still breathing. The surviving puppy was “wet from the overnight storms and very cold.” The deputy then placed the puppy in a dry tee shirt and “placed him on the warm hood of my car to warm him up.”
The deputy then took the puppy to Heart of Georgia Animal Care, which agreed to take the puppy in. “Nothing was inside of the book bag or on the outside that would help identify the offender.” The incident occurred along Effingham Road behind Dairy Queen.
The puppy “is doing okay” and has since been picked up by the Animal Rescue Foundation, according to an employee at Heart of Georgia.
