BATON ROUGE- The Capitol Area Animal Welfare Society wants your help identifying two women who were caught on camera dumping dogs and cats on the property.

Surveillance video from Friday night shows two women in a white car unloading dogs, puppies and kittens inside the entrance gate at CAAWS. Glenda Parks, with CAAWS, says the woman dump animals on the property at least once a month and have dumped nearly 100 animals in the past year.

"The kittens have diseases, eye problems, they have skin problems. The dogs are malnourished," Parks said.

Some of the dogs and cats that are abandoned get treatment and are put up for adoption. But Parks says CAAWS doesn't have the money or space to care for all the animals that are dumped.

Dumping animals is considered animal cruelty and carries up to a $500 fine or up to six months in jail.

If you know the women in the surveillance video contact the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office.
