INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - An Indianapolis fire station received an unexpected weekend delivery when someone left nearly two dozen puppies on its doorstep.

WTHR-TV (bit.ly/1Q4yMPF ) reports that the abandoned dogs were dropped off in a box outside of Station 22 on the city’s north side.

The puppies have since been picked up by Indianapolis’s Animal Care and Control office.

The fire department issued a public reminder that its firefighters are not equipped to care for unwanted animals. The department says such pet owners should instead work with the city animal shelter or the local Humane Society.
