Puppies ‘Dumped’ in Southern Arizona Canyon Ready for Adoption

SIERRA VISTA, Ariz. (3TV/CBS 5) — Three puppies who were abandoned in a southern Arizona canyon are ready for their forever home because someone has been arrested for leaving them there. Someone called the Cochise County Sheriff’s Office on Saturday and told them about several dogs on the loose in Carr Canyon, who is in sierra vista. The caller found the three puppies but was unable to catch the mother. Animal control officers showed up and found the puppies, which were around 12 weeks old. The mother was eventually surrounded as well.

The CCSO discovered that a woman, later identified as Coral Dominguez, was advertising donated dogs on social media that resembled the dogs found in the canyon. She eventually commented on the Facebook post: “I threw them away,” the deputies said. Investigators brought her in for questioning on Tuesday. It’s unclear what was said, but she was arrested and imprisoned for animal cruelty. It will be up to the Cochise County District Attorney’s Office to decide whether prosecutors move forward with the case.

As for the dogs, the mother has already been placed in a loving home. All three puppies are at the Douglas Animal Shelter and are available for adoption. The shelter can be reached at 520-417-7567.
