GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. (WGHP) — A Good Samaritan found a suitcase full of puppies in Guilford County last week and dropped them off with Guilford County Animal Services, according to a GCAS post on social media.

When the puppies were found in the suitcase on the side of the road, the case was zipped up except for one small part.

The Good Samaritan noticed the suitcase was moving and stopped to check it out. Animal Services workers say the person who found the puppies was shocked and brought them to the shelter immediately.

The four puppies are all girls, and the animal shelter is working to place them in foster-to-adopt homes with people who have experience working with under-socialized dogs. They will need lots of affection and patience.

Animal services workers named them: Tumi, Samsonite, Stowaway and Carion.
