LA PINE, OR -- The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office is trying to track down the owner of eight puppies abandoned last week in La Pine. The dogs appear to be seven or eight weeks old and were found in the area of Boundary Road and Camino De Oro Avenue.
A witness reports seeing a green Subaru in the area at the time, driven by a man in his late 20s, with a female passenger. It’s unknown if they’re involved, but deputies want to talk with the pair.
A good samaritan brought the puppies to the La Pine Animal hospital. They’re now being cared for at the Humane Society of Central Oregom shelter in Bend.
Anyone with information is urged to call the Sheriff’s Office through nonemergency dispatch (541-693-6911), reference case number 24-7083.
