Five two-week old puppies were found abandoned near the restrooms at a northern Arizona park Wednesday.
Yavapai County Sheriff's Office spokesperson said.
According to YCSO, an Animal Countrol Officer rushed the liiter to the Sedona Humane Society, where they were examined by the on-duty veterinarian and provided food and water.
The puppies remain in the care of Humane Society staff, who will continue to monitor their condition.
According to YCSO, the puppies appear to be about two-weeks old, and are described as possibly a mix of Shepherd and Pit Bull breeds. There is a tri-colored male, a tan and black male, a white and black male, a tan female and a black and tan female.
The box that contained the puppies is yellow and white, with the brand "Bacardi" printed on the exterior.
According to YCSO, a plain white t-shirt was found covering the box.
