RENO, Nev. (AP) - A Lake Tahoe animal shelter is providing a new lease on life to seven puppies left for dead in a trash bin in Susanville, California, only a couple days after they were born.

Volunteers at the Pet Network Humane Society in Incline Village have nursed the pups back to health after they were discovered Oct. 29 behind a Radio Shack.

The nonprofit was contacted after the animals were taken to a Susanville-area animal shelter, which lacked the staff to care for them.

Pet Network spokeswoman Brittney Schilpp says the prognosis is upbeat for the suspected Labrador-mix puppies and they'll eventually be put up for adoption.

Last year, the shelter provided similar care to six puppies abandoned in a trash bin in South Lake Tahoe, California, before finding them permanent homes.
