SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — All nine puppies that were found abandoned in a dog food bag at a North County park have been adopted out.

The Shar Pei mixes were put up for adoption Thursday at the San Diego Humane Society's Escondido campus. By the end of the day, they had all found new homes.

A Good Samaritan discovered the dogs sealed in a dog food bag and left at Kit Carson Park in January. The dogs were cold, dehydrated, and covered in feces and urine, the humane society said at the time.
