Police in Bridgeport said they rescued several puppies from a hot car and arrested the man responsible for leaving them there.

Onnie Canady, 54, was charged with cruelty to animals.

Police said they received a number of complaints about the dogs being left in a car on Main Street in Bridgeport.

Officers arrived and found the vehicle with the windows only open a crack. They recorded a temperature of 86 degrees at the time.

Four puppies were inside, three of which were held in a small crate.

Police said the pets appeared to be dehydrated.

Canady returned to the vehicle with a young girl about 25 minutes later.

The dogs were placed in the care of Bridgeport animal control.
