The Arizona Humane Society says they’re working with police to investigate who left five puppies inside a duffel bag inside a Phoenix dumpster.

AHS says the puppies were found Monday near 7th Avenue and Baseline Road inside a discarded black duffel bag.

Unfortunately, two of the puppies did not survive the incident. Three, however, were examined and are recovering well.

All three are female Chihuahua mixes, believed to be around 11 weeks old.

The puppies are expected to go up for adoption in the next several days.

We reached out to Phoenix police for more information into the investigation.

Anyone with any information about this case should contact Phoenix police.
