'It was approximately eight degrees outside, with a one-degree wind chill, when the puppy was found.' 9News

RSPCA NSW said the little animal was reportedly dumped as part of a council clean-up in Carpenter Street, Colyton.

The organisation is looking to get in contact with two members of the public who found the puppy around 8am yesterday morning.The RSPCA described the people as "a tall Caucasian male of a strong build, approximately 70-80 years of age, wearing a jacket and hat" and "a tanned male of a regular build, accompanied by a yellow Labrador with a harness and coat".

The esky contained a red 'Puma' branded t-shirt, a green children's singlet with a pineapple print and a padded item the RSCPA believes is part of a baby's car seat. "The puppy was transported to RSPCA Yagoona for emergency veterinary treatment," the RSCPA said on Facebook.READ MORE:"Neonatal puppies are unable to thermoregulate, and exposure to these harsh weather conditions would have severely impacted the puppy's welfare."Comments on the Facebook post called the act of leaving a puppy in an esky "absolutely disgraceful" and "barbaric".

I fear for the puppy’s mum and siblings 😢

Why didn't the person wrap it up before using the camera on the phone ?
