Tiny Puppy Rescued After Being Found Discarded In The Trash

Chattanooga, TN – A tiny puppy is safe and receiving care after being rescued from a trash bin where she had been cruelly thrown away. But the McKamey Animal Center wants to find the person(s) responsible for throwing her away.

According to the animal center, they received a call on Tuesday from a Chattanooga Gas employee reporting a small animal apparently discarded in a trash can at the former Hair Wonder Beauty Supply at 4772 Highway 58, Chattanooga.

Responding officers found a young puppy, wet and hypothermic, and too young to survive on her own.

Fortunately, this abandoned pup was found in the nick of time. After being rescued, her body temperature was stabilized, and she happily drank a bottle of milk. She is currently in a foster home and will remain there until she is old enough to be adopted.

Information and a reward

MAC is actively investigating this case of apparent animal abandonment, but needs your help, as there were no witnesses and no functioning security cameras in the vicinity. If you have any information about who might have abandoned this helpless pup, please call (423) 305-6500 ext.1.

McKamey Animal Center is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for abandoning her.

Donations for the reward fund can be made at this link.

  1. i hope they catch this worthless piece of garbage. how could anyone just dump that little guy in the garbage. i don’t think we will ever be able to fix this problem. you can remain optimistic for only so long. you hope over time things will improve. well as many can see they are getting worse and unfortunately social media plays a huge part in this. these maniacs crave attention and these animals and sometimes people as well pay the price for their stupidity. social media can be a great tool but like always it don’t take long for humans to destroy it.
