Seven newborn puppies found abandoned with their mom in an alley will soon be up for adoption.
A man walking through an alley heard strange noises coming from a box. When he went to go take a look, he discovered Polly, an eight-pound Terrier mix and her seven newborn puppies.
The man brought them to a Department of Animal Services shelter in Mission Valley.
Polly and her seven puppies were transferred to Rancho Coastal Humane Society in Encinitas where they have been recovering.
According to a spokesperson for the Rancho Coastal Human Society, Polly was not producing milk and the puppies have been bottle fed in private foster care.
The puppies should be available for adoption in three weeks.
In the meantime, Rancho Coastal Humane Society is asking the public's help with the medical costs.
