LEE COUNTY, Fla.- Lee County Domestic Animal Services tells us it's looking for a new foster home for two puppies abused in Cape Coral. The previous foster family can't watch them anymore, because of a family illness.

Animal Services says the puppies will be up for adoption in a month.

Pedro Moreta, the man accused of kicking and dragging the puppies down a steet, remains behind bars.
