HOUSTON — A couple of 3-week-old puppies were surrendered Thursday to a local animal shelter.

A woman dropped off the puppies at the Harris County Animal Shelter. Shelter employees tried to convince the owner to keep the puppies with the mom a little while longer, but she surrendered the puppies anyway.

The puppies are now with a rescue group, being bottle-fed and specially cared for until they’re old enough for adoption.
