On 09-28-04, approximately 11:30 a.m. a couple visiting Humboldt County from Phoenix, Arizona found four Labrador-mix puppies at Moonstone Beach Parking lot. The puppies were left in a cardboard box in the parking lot without food or water, apparently abandoned. The couple brought the puppies to the Humboldt County Animal Shelter where they are currently being housed. The puppies appear to be in good health.

Abandonment of an animal is a crime punishable by up to a year in jail and a fine. Anyone with information regarding these puppies is asked to call the Humboldt County Animal Shelter at 840-9132.

If the owner of the puppies is not located, the puppies (one male and three females) will be available for adoption beginning Monday, October 4, 2004. Photos of the puppies can be viewed at www.petharbor.com.

The Humboldt County Animal Shelter is located at 980 Lycoming Lane (off Airport Road), in McKinleyville.
