A puppy was found inside a plastic bag in a dumpster behind a CVS store in Surprise Thursday, according to police.

Surprise PD's animal care and control unit went to the scene near Litchfield and Greenway roads and found the puppy, who appeared neglected. Officers transported the puppy for treatment.

Police are asking for the public's help in tracking down the person who put the puppy in the dumpster. If you have any information, call Surprise PD at 623-222-8477 and reference incident number 180102249. You can also email crimetips@surpriseaz.gov.

Police are setting up arrangements at the Arizona Humane Society to nurse the dog back to help and eventually get the pup adopted.
