Four puppies found dumped in Droitwich

THE RSPCA is appealing for information after four puppies were dumped in Droitwich.

The four crossbreed dogs, three boys and one girl thought to be between 12 and 16 weeks old, were found by a member of the public on Monday (May 1).

At about 6.25pm on Elmley Lane in Cutnall Green, the person had seen a transit van pull up near a gate just before he found the young dogs.

The van hasn’t been traced and it is unclear at this stage whether it is connected to the puppies being abandoned.

RSPCA inspector, Emily Cheeseman, said: “We have no idea where the puppies have come from as they had no collars and no microchips.

“Unfortunately there was no CCTV either so we are relying on people to come forward and give us information.

“There is no excuse for abandoning animals in this way.”

The puppies are now being cared for by the RSPCA team at Newbrook Farm Animal Centre in Frankley.

If anyone has any information, contact the RSPCA on 0300 123 8018.
