VIDEO: A dog and puppies were found abandoned in a zipped-up suitcase on Wednesday in Johnston County, according to the Cleveland Fire Department. Firefighters from Cleveland Station 2 discovered the suitcase on Wednesday evening around 5 p.m. The suitcase had been left abandoned in front of the fire station. "I don't understand why people do it. All they have to do is come to the shelter and walk in the building and we'll take the animals," Chad Massengill said. Firefighters realized there was something besides just a suitcase that had been dropped off. Authorities moved the family of dogs to a safe location. They gave the dogs water and some food. The crew contacted Johnston County Animal Control, and the dogs are now being treated there.
