CCTV captured the heartbreaking moment the two puppies – thought to be Lhasa Apsos – were thrown out of the carrier bag into the front garden of a house in Sanderson Avenue, Bradford.
The horrific event unfolded at 9.10pm on 28 September on a cold night, according to the animal welfare organisation, and the puppies are lucky to be alive.
RSPCA inspector Sally Bamforth, who is now investigating, said: “The CCTV clearly shows a man walk past and then stop before holding a carrier bag over the wall and tipping it out into the garden.
“Then, as he walks away, he pauses as the two tiny, disorientated puppies appear from underneath a bush and potter across the lawn.
“The footage shows the man wrapped up in a big coat so it was obviously a cold night and you can see lashings of rain across the camera.
“These puppies were tiny, far too young to be away from their mum and were practically bald due to a nasty skin infection.
“They must have been freezing and it’s a miracle that they survived until they were discovered.”
The animal welfare organisation was called at 2.45am after the puppies were discovered in the garden.
CCTV footage has been released in a bid to track down the man responsible.

Inspector Bamforth said: “To abandon any animal is cruel but to dump these tiny, vulnerable puppies like this is just unspeakable.”
“Watching the footage is heartbreaking, anything could have happened to these little pups.
“I’d like to say a huge thank you to those people who found them and called us so we could get them to a vet.”
The puppies – a male and female – are now being cared for by staff at RSPCA Preston & District branch.
Pippin and Perdy, as they’ve been named, are receiving treatment and regular baths to treat their skin infection.

Georgina Meeks, who has been looking after the pair, said: “They are doing really well. They love their food, they scoff it down. And they’re really perky, very playful and extremely affectionate.
“They absolutely love each other and cuddle up together for naps – it’s so cute.”
Inspector Bamforth added: “Ultimately I’m investigating the abandonment of these pups but I’m also concerned for the welfare of their mother.”
The RSPCA is urging anyone with information on the suspect or the whereabouts of the puppies mum, to contact them.
