Nine puppies were found abandoned outside of the PAWSH pet boutique in the Park Place Mall early Wednesday morning. 

The puppies were found in a plastic tub by mall security.

"They are clearly very sick little guys," said Brandy Burke, The Humane Society of Southern Arizona's Chief Operations Officer. "We're moving ahead with further tests to determine the appropriate medical care."



The organization says it doesn't know if the puppies will survive.

The HSSA wants to remind the community that these situations are preventable. 

The organization offers low-cost spay and neutering services, and does a vaccination special twice a week.

"I can't overemphasize the importance of spay/neuter surgeries, and proper vaccinations for our pets," said Vanessa Ford, HSSA's Director of Marketing and Communications. 

The Humane Society needs help raising $8,000 for treatment.
