PETA is currently asking for help from the public to find the ones responsible for leaving 3 puppies abandoned outside during freezing temperatures.

On Monday, the organization released a press release, “PETA is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction on cruelty charges of the person(s) responsible for abandoning three puppies in the woods in the freezing cold near the intersection of Gershal and Eppinger avenues. One of the puppies was already dead by the time they had been discovered.

On 29th November, Suzanne Stretch, a resident based in Buena, heard the puppies cry and discovered the animals.

Immediately, the New Jersey State Police Bridgeton Station Troopers were sent over near Salem County’s Eppinger Avenue located in Pittsgrove Township at 12:30 p.m. approximately to rescue the cute puppies.

As per PETA, Stretch found the pups “trapped in a basket. One puppy was deceased, and the remaining two were emaciated, dehydrated, and cold. Weather reports show that the temperature dipped to as low as 20 degrees that day.

Once the puppies were taken to South Jersey Regional Animal Shelter and aided by the vets, it was discovered that the pups were only ten weeks old. The couple was named Wanda and Cosmo.

Colleen O’Brien, the Senior Vice President of PETA, said, “Someone dumped these puppies in the woods; one died, and the others were left to freeze or starve to death. If there are more animals in this person’s custody, they could be in grave danger, and PETA urges anyone with information to come forward.” No suspects or leads have been identified.
