KENNETT, MO (KFVS) -

Authorities are looking for the person or persons responsible for abandoning five puppies in a locked cage on a county road.

According to the Kennett Humane Department, a young family found the puppies in a field and called KHD for help.

The department said the puppies couldn't even try to find shade.

They say three puppies died from the heat, dehydration and starvation. The other two are flea-infested, have worms, were dehydrated, emaciated, have  open wounds and were overheated.

If you have any information, you're asked to call 1-573-888-4622.
