SOUTH MILWAUKEE -- Three newborn puppies were discovered in a South Milwaukee trash can Tuesday, MADACC says.

The Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission said in a Facebook post the puppies were found around the 1300 block of Minnesota Avenue. They have been placed into immediate foster care, as they currently require around-the-clock care.

"These puppies were lucky to have been found, but many situations like these are never even noticed and do not end with a rescue," part of the post reads.

The incident illustrates the importance of spaying and neutering your pets, MADACC says.

"Please think about spaying or neutering your animal if you are not prepared to deal with an unwanted litter. Both MADACC and the Wisconsin Humane Society have low cost options for everyone to take advantage of."

You can also contact the Humane Society to discuss surrendering your dogs there, they point out.
