"We have no suspects at this time and this type of animal cruelty is hard to comprehend but a sad reality we see," the department wrote. "There is no excuse to discard these helpless puppies who most likely would have had a fatal end if they were not found in time."

The puppies were taken to a vet and treated for low body temperatures. Their rescuers are caring for them until a permanent home is found, police said.

Anyone with information about the dogs is asked to call 911.
