Sick Puppies Dumped on Road

April Livingston | October 2nd, 2018

An individual was going about their daily routine and driving down a road in London when they spotted something odd: a black metal crate. It wasn’t just a crate, however: it was a crate with six tiny puppies stuffed inside and abandoned. This Good Samaritan pulled over their car to help the puppies and took them to the PDSA Pet Hospital to get them the medical help they so desperately needed. It was a shock to everyone in the clinic because the puppies were so young and in such terrible condition despite their young age.

The puppies were estimated to be just eight weeks old, but they were very underweight and filthy. They were also infested with both fleas and worms and it seems they were discovered just at the right time, as doctors don’t believe they would have lasted much longer on their own. They puppies received fluids to help with dehydration, flea and worm treatment, and vaccinations. Staffers at the hospital were happy to help these puppies in any way they could and say it’s a good example of why pet owners should have their pets spayed or neutered. This practice helps to prevent unwanted litters of puppies.

Because the PDSA Pet Hospital is not a shelter, they contacted the RSPCA rescue group to take the puppies in once they were well enough to leave. They are now in the RSPCA’s care and are working on getting healthy and having a fighting chance at life. The puppies are going to be placed in private boarding for assessment and then will be ready to find their forever homes. Best of all, the puppies now have names: Charlie, Budd, Montague, Ella, Vicky, and Chanel. Those are characters from a popular BBC show called “The Bodyguard,” beloved by RSPCA staff.

The RSPCA is currently trying to investigate the situation and find whomever dumped the puppies and are also focusing on finding new homes for the pups.
