KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Ten puppies abandoned on the side of the road in east Kansas City are now being cared for by KC Pet Project.

The puppies were found in an old plastic Rubbermaid tub along Raytown Road near I-435 Wednesday afternoon. The dogs were exposed to the cold for an undetermined about of time and left to die without food or water.

Fortunately for the puppies, a Good Samaritan driving by stopped to see what was in the container and discovered the tiny dogs. That person took them to KC Pet Project, which is actually just down the road from where the dogs were abandoned. The puppies are now under a veterinarian's care.

The puppies are four to five weeks old and will be available for adoption in a few weeks. If you are interested in adopting one of these pups or any of the other animals, you can call the KC Pet Project at 816-513-9821 or visit their website: kcpetproject.org.

The KC Pet Project and other animal shelters in the metro take care of abandoned and neglected animals by providing food and medical care. Their location along Raytown Road opens at noon. Another shelter located in Zona Rosa opens at 10 a.m.

If you have a dog, cat, puppy or kitten you don't want, don't it on the side of the road. Take that animal to your area shelter and leave them there, so they can be cared for by a loving family that wants them in their home.

    If anyone knows the person who rescued these puppies, a good friend of mine would like to give them a pair of Rockfest KC Tickets for their good deed and I personally would like to donate some $ to the KCPetProject.Org in their name to help care for them. If anyone knows who this person is, please let us know. GREAT INCREDIBLE AWESOME show of compassion for what you did for these puppies. Really moved us!!!!!

    Sickening! KC Pet Project is actually located what?… like a mile from there??? Drop them off even in front of the building when no one is there and you would have given them more of a chance than what you did. People just amaze me sometime. Cruel and sad. Thank you to the good samaritan!!

    The excess of dogs and cats could be a solution to the high food prices at the store. If more people started eating dogs and cats, beef prices may come down. Besides, dog and cat meat would probably be relatively cheap and affordable for those families that like to use their money for beer, cigarettes, drugs and tattoos. At least it may alleviate the problem of children going to bed hungry.

      I Think having a general concept of the animals being neutered. We let our one cat have a liter and then had her neutered. It worked out well but only one of her siblings lived. It’s amazing to see how the mother and son get along, almost better than humans.
