By  | 

ANTIGO, Wis. (WSAW) -- The Antigo teen behind a non-profit that helps raise money for animals in need says Caring Paws will match donations up to $2,000 for eight newborn puppies found in a dumpster in Marshfield.

A 56-year-old Marshfield man was arrested earlier this month after police found eight puppies in a garbage bag, in a trash can on 4th Street. Marshfield Police say they got a call, reporting the sound of kittens coming from a garbage can outside a home on the 800 block of East 4th Street. When they arrived, they found eight newborn puppies inside. Police say they took the puppies to the Marshfield Area Pet Shelter.

Julianna Bauknecht started her non-profit organization when she was 10.

She said donations will be matched through March 31.
