Police say 6 puppies were found abandoned in cage at side of King Township road

A passerby called police on Tuesday after discovering six puppies in a wire cage abandoned at the side of a road in King Township.

York Regional Police officers were called on Tuesday, April 2, at around 2:27 p.m. after the caged puppies were discovered in the Weston Road and 15th Sideroad area.

“The puppies, described as being similar to a Husky breed, did not appear to be in distress and had no visible injuries,” a police release states.

The puppies have been taken into the care of animal services.

On Thursday, a police spokesperson told CityNews that no one has come forward to claim the puppies.

“Please do not call animal services, they do not want any inquiries about them yet. We are hoping someone recognizes where the puppies may have come from and contact us. That has yet to happen,” police said.

They are not currently available for adoption. There’s no word at this point on who abandoned the puppies but police say they are seeking witnesses.
