Puppy rescued from recycling center ready to be adopted
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- A puppy found filthy and injured in a San Francisco recycling center last month has now recovered and is ready for adoption.
City workers found three-month old Gem on a conveyer belt at the Recology transfer station on December 27. They noticed her squirming inside a bag and stopped the conveyer before she was sent to a landfill.
Gem had significant injuries to her neck and legs.
Over the past month, she's healed and is looking for a home.
Animal control said at least 250 people have applied to adopt her.
