    Two puppies found abandoned in a Dumpster in Monterey County over the weekend are in the care of the local Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

    When you see their faces, it's hard to imagine who could have treated two puppies like trash, throwing theminto a dumpster.   It happened in Monterey County over the weekend  just a short drive from a local shelter.

    The puppies were found Sunday afternoon in a Dumpster next to a  Wells Fargo Bank at the Stone Creek Village Shopping Center in Del Rey Oaks.  

    A man heard whimpering coming from inside the trash receptacle,  found the puppies inside and brought them to the SPCA on state Highway 68 at  about 3 p.m., SPCA Lt. Danielle Scheid said.

    The puppies, 7-week-old mixed breeds named Sadie and Lulu by SPCA  staff, are in good condition but Sadie has a large scar on her head from a  previous injury, Scheid said.

    "The puppies are acting very, very sweet," she said.

    The SPCA is not yet looking for homes for the puppies; first they  want to find out who left them in the Dumpster.

    "Whoever did this could easily have driven another five minutes  and surrendered the puppies to us, no questions asked," said Beth  Brookhouser, the SPCA's director of community outreach.

    The center is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to  the arrest and conviction of the responsible party.

    Anyone with information on the case is asked to contact the SPCA  at 831-373-2631.  All calls are confidential.

    Investigators are offering a $1,000 reward in the  case.
