Sheila Marquis, the Humane Society's chief humane agent described the puppies as extremely malnourished.

The two dead dogs may have been dropped off by someone else.

According to WHIO, Officer Marquis doesn't think the two dead dogs died at the shelter. She stated:

"I think, by judging on certain things that appear after something has been deceased for a while, I think that it has been at least 10 or 12 hours. I don't think that they were dumped and they died here. I think they died somewhere else."

The Humane Society wants to remind everyone that it is a crime to abandon an animal.

The Humane Society of Greater Dayton continues to look for qualified foster parents for dogs and cats who are too young or too sick to be eligible for adoption. If you would like to volunteer to become a foster, contact our foster coordinator Janie Davis at jdavis@hsdayton.org of (937) 262-5937.

Check out the pictures of the adorable puppies.
