Eight puppies abandoned in sweltering Texas heat rescued by deputies

A litter of puppies was rescued after being left inside a carrier on a field in Tarrant County, Texas, in triple-digit temperatures.

The eight pups were abandoned without water in 100-degree heat on Monday, according to the Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office Facebook post.

Fortunately, a good Samaritan found the dogs and reported the finding to authorities.

“Unfortunately, due to a lack of surveillance cameras in the area the puppies were found, it is unlikely we will be able to catch whoever dumped the puppies,” officials with the sheriff’s office wrote online.

Tips for keeping pets safe in the heat from the American Red Cross:

“Never leave your pet in a hot vehicle.”

“Limit exercise on hot days. Exercise in the early morning or evening hours.”

“Walk your pet in the grass if possible, to avoid hot surfaces burning their paws.”

“If your pet is outside, make sure they have access to shade and plenty of cool water.”
