Four Lurcher pups were found in a plastic bag by a river in Surrey.
The 12 week old bitches, two bitches and two males, were found by a citizen in Leatherhead on Thursday (June 3rd) around 1pm.
They were released from the pier and suffered from sarcoptic mange, which causes severe itching in dogs. It leads to the loss of large chunks of fur.
The poor pups are now in the safe hands of the RSPCA Millbrook Animal Center, and the charity is now seeking public help to find out how the Lurchers were left there.
Animal Rescue Officer Chloe Wilson said, “We believe these poor pups were dumped in a sack by the river. They suffer from mange, which means that they are very itchy and have fairly severe hair loss.
“These dogs were in dire need of veterinary attention, but it appears they have been numbly abandoned instead.
“If anyone has any information about how these puppies were abandoned, or if anyone recognizes them, please contact our Regulatory Authority Complaints Office on 0300 123 8018.”
The pups were named Norma, Jean, Bradley and Cooper and are now being cared for at the RSPCA center.
They are not yet available for re-lease, but once they are there the details will be updated here on the RSPCA website.
