Puppies Found Abandoned in Bush

April Livingston | July 26th, 2018

The RSPCA is no stranger to urgent phone calls about dogs in distress. However, a recent call made the rescue group jump into action to save lives. An anonymous tip was submitted to the RSPCA rescue group about a man who was selling very sick puppies out of the back of a van on the street. When individuals from the RSPCA arrived on the scene to investigate what was happening, they couldn’t believe what they found. A woman named Mel Fisher, who works for the RSPCA found the van in question, and it had been dumped in a remote location and it was empty. Then, she found something incredible in a nearby bush: nine scared little puppies inside of a bin. The puppies were all different breeds and ages, and it was clear they needed help.

It was an incredibly hot day, so all of the puppies were quiet and panting, clearly from exhaustion from their exposure to the heat. No one knew how long the puppies had been in that bush, but they really did not move or react when Mel approached the bin. She knew they needed immediate medical attention, so she scooped up all nine puppies and headed straight to the veterinarian’s office. The puppies would be examined there, then transferred to the RSPCA’s Blackberry Farm Animal Center for further care.

Due to their exposure to the heat, the puppies were very sick. Not only were the puppies quiet and lethargic, but each had severe diarrhea. However, with plenty of care, the puppies were all able to recover from their ordeal and within a few weeks they were acting like energetic, spunky puppies again. They were even given names: Barbara, Agnes, Davina, Cheryl, Denise, Jim, Jerry, Norman, and Joey. Best of all, each of the puppies were put up for adoption and all were quickly adopted into loving homes!
