PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Four puppies were recovering and being prepared for adoption at Maricopa County Animal Care and Control after they were found doused in diesel fuel Friday.

The German shepherd mix pups were found shivering, wet and cold from a rainstorm that hit the Phoenix area hard Friday.

A person found the pups in the 1000 block of north 43rd Avenue in a gray plastic bin reeking of diesel fuel and called Animal Control, according to an MCACC news release.

MCACC staffers washed and rewashed the dogs to get rid of the toxic fuel, which could have been fatal if the dogs had inhaled or ingested the fuel, according to the release.

The pups were also being treated with antibiotics for minor bites to their hind legs.

The three females and one male are about 2 months old, and MCACC staff said they were hoping to have them adopted out before Thanksgiving.

Anyone interested in adopting the puppies should be at the MCACC's Under One Woof Adoption facility at Metrocenter Mall in Phoenix at 11 a.m. Wednesday.

If more than one family for each dog shows, there will be a drawing. The adoption fee is $100 per puppy.
