TUCSON (Tucson News Now) - For the second time in weeks, a puppy is at the Humane Society of Southern Arizona after being found in a trash can at a local park.

The Society says employees at Kennedy Park found the frail puppy Monday, and a good Samaritan couple took the dog to the shelter.  The dog -- since named "Kennedy" -- was severely emaciated, dehydrated and very hungry.

Last month a dog named Oscar was found in a trash can at Reid Park, wrapped in a plastic bag. Oscar was nursed back to health and adopted the same day Kennedy came in.

The HSSA has filed a report, and 88-CRIME is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.  If you have information, call the Animal Cruelty Taskforce of Southern Arizona Anonymous Reporting Line at 520-547-0260 or 88-CRIME.  You can also submit an anonymous tip online at www.88crime.org
