EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (KMOV.com) -- The Metro East Humane Society is asking for donations after a puppy was found in a closed garbage can in Wood River Saturday morning. 

Puppy found in garbage can held shut with bungee cords in Metro East

The Wood River Police Department dropped off the puppy to the Humane Society Saturday morning. It's still unclear how long the puppy was left there for. 

The puppy was found in a garbage can closed shut with bungee cords behind the Wood River Walmart, according to the Humane Society. 

The puppy will stay with the Humane Society for now and will eventually be available for adoption.
