Gail E. Gauthier, 66, was charged Wednesday. According to court papers, on Oct. 11, she left several puppies at the Jack Stockton building on Donnell Drive in Calera. The incident was captured on a video camera and it was subsequently posted on Facebook. The video shows a woman dumping the box of puppies and then driving away.
