Applications pour in to adopt 10-week-old pup found abandoned in dumpster

December 23, 2013

PAWTUCKET – A 10-week old puppy discovered mixed in with rubbish inside a dumpster last Thursday has captured the hearts of dozens of potential adopters moved by the pup’s plight.

Within hours after The Times ran a story Saturday on the discarded puppy, the Pawtucket Animal Shelter’s telephone began lighting up, and people were visiting the shelter in droves throughout the weekend with offers of a forever home.

“It’s been crazy,” said Animal Control Director John Holmes. “The phone’s been ringing off the hook all weekend and it hasn’t stopped.”
