Animal cruelty officers from Wayne County Animal Control have just rescued five puppies after their owners tried to bury them alive.

The couple killed the older dogs, dug a grave, and placed the five living dogs in the grave in Goldsboro, North Carolina to bury them. 

“They had already been placed on top of the deceased, and was fixing to be covered,” stated animal control officer James Smith to News10. “I took the two adult animals out of the hole, the dirt, bagged them, and then I took custody of the puppies.”

Deputies were alerted to the dogs by a neighbor who saw headlights behind an abandoned farmhouse.

When they arrived, officers found a gun in the farmhouse believe to have killed the older dogs, and authorities arrested Marquise Christopher Johnson and Emily Ann Gray. 

Each has been charged with five counts of animal cruelty, and additional charges could be levied depending on the results of the necropsies of the two dead dogs. 

Luckily, the three-week-old puppies were placed with a surrogate mother who has been nursing them, although the volunteers are prepared to nurse the pups with baby bottles if needed. 

While the puppies won’t be ready for adoption until mid-February, the shelter is hoping a rescue organization can pitch in to help them take care of the dogs.
