TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Humane Society of Southern Arizona is urging pet owners to get their pets spayed and neutered, after nine puppies were abandoned outside the Park Place Mall early Wednesday morning. 

The puppies were found in a plastic tub outside of the PAWSH pet boutique store, which is owned by HSSA, according to a news release.

Mall security called HSSA around 7 a.m., and Chief Operations Officer Brandy Burke drove to pick them up. 

HSSA staff discovered the puppies have parvo. One of them died. 

“They are clearly very sick little guys," she said, adding HSSA is working to give the rest of the puppies the best chance at life. 

HSSA Director of Marketing and Communications Vanessa Ford said situations like this are all too common, and are preventable. 

It is crucial that pet owners spay and neuter their pets, and get them their proper vaccinations, she said.

"These puppies are suffering, and through no fault of their own," Ford said. "It is up to us, as a community of pet lovers, to make sure that all pets have the proper preventative care."

A crowdfund has been set up for the puppies' healthcare. HSSA is asking for $8,000 to help them.
