COACHELLA, Ca. (CNN) – A California woman could face animal cruelty charges for reportedly dumping newborn puppies near a trash bin.

Officials say she was caught on camera throwing a bag with seven puppies in it near a car parts store. 
The dogs were believed to be about three days old.

A good Samaritan discovered the dogs and animal services managed to save them.

“I noticed the bag on the floor and they were tied up in the bag, so I immediately opened the bag a little further and I proceeded to call animal services to see what I can do with them because I couldn’t leave them there.”

Officials say Deborah Culwell was arrested near her home in Coachella Monday night.

38 dogs were found on her property and have been placed in a shelter.
