LORENA, TX (KXXV) -

The Lorena Police Department received a call last week where seven puppies were abandoned at a post office with two kennels and food left behind.

The owner left them behind Saturday night, and police have no information on who the individual was that left the puppies in the crate.

Police contacted Fuzzy Friends, and luckily, there was enough room for them to take the pups in.

Christie Bunkley, director of shelter operations at Fuzzy Friends, said it helps to know if the animals have received previous vaccinations, but they weren’t sure with the new puppies.

“If there’s any history with the parent or if any other in the litter had been sick, it’s just always good to know those things, the history, as much as possible,” Bunkley said.

The pups seemed to be in good condition and will take several weeks before they can be adopted. If anyone wants to adopt one, officials said to write “Lorena 7” on their Facebook page.
