FOND DU LAC – Two puppies are fighting for their lives after having bleach poured on them in Fond du Lac.
Officials at the Fond du Lac Humane Society say one of the American Staffordshire terriers was shoved into a garbage bag and left in a dumpster this weekend. A neighbor heard the dog crying, rescued him, and then called police.
The six-week-old dogs have chemical burns to the face and eyes, and damage to their lungs. Humane society officials say the next five days of care will be critical for the puppies.
A third dog was also rescued from the home. That dog, according to the humane society, is okay and will be immediately available for adoption.
The Fond du Lac Humane Society says it is in need of supplies to care for these dogs. Items needed include canned puppy chow and puppy milk replacer. Donations for vet care can also be made by clicking here.
