Puppies rescued from Blackstone River to go up for adoption soon
Six puppies that were rescued after being dumped into the river in Uxbridge will soon be up for adoption.
The puppies, now about 6 1/2 weeks old, were found by a kayaker in the Blackstone River on Sept. 24. Police say they had been placed in a bag that was about to go underwater.
The puppies have been given water-themed names like River and Creek and are currently living with Uxbridge animal control officer Kevin Sullivan and his family.
The Telegram & Gazette reported that they will likely be ready for adoption in the next few weeks.
Police are still looking for whoever threw the puppies in the river.
