A janitor for the North Windham School located on 112 Jordan Lane in North Windham, Conn. found three dead, emaciated dogs that had been tossed in a dumpster sometime over the weekend, on Monday afternoon reports nbcconnecticut.com.

The three dogs, a Boston terrier, Yorkshire terrier, and a small mixed breed appeared to have been starved to death and extremely neglected. Their coats were matted and nails overgrown; the dogs weighed no more than a few pounds each.

The dogs were left in a cardboard box and thrown into the dumpster.

One of the dogs had a microchip, but it was never registered.

The North Windham Animal Control authorities are hoping the public can help supply information about the dogs. Anyone knowing who these dogs belonged to are asked to contact Animal Control at (860)-465-3087.

Animal Control Officer Joan Lamont stated it was one of the worst things she had ever seen.

"To find three small dogs like this – that suggests that it was a situation where they were all being neglected, especially the condition of the rests of their bodies."

A necropsy is being performed on Tuesday.

Rest in peace little dogs.
