Police found a black SUV in the parking lot with two 8-9 week old terrier puppies in the rear seat locked in a plastic crate, according to a report. The outside temperature at the time was 90 degrees and the heat index was nearing 100 degrees.

Police added the windows were slightly cracked allowing no ventilation and the vehicle's air conditioning was not working.

The report states the male puppy was anemic with a bloody stool and the dogs were inside the vehicle for over 30 to 45 minutes.

The puppies were seized and taken to the Humane Society for care and treatment.
