Puppies dumped in Wellington duck pond

Three puppies dumped near a duck pond in Porirua, north of Wellington, are lucky to be alive, the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) says.

The puppies, aged just a few days old, would have died had they not been found last night, Wellington SPCA chief executive Judi Weir said.

"Puppies of this age need their mother. These puppies would have died of either hunger, dehydration or cold," she said.

"All the owners had to do was call us and we would have come and collected them. This would have prevented the puppies suffering and we could have arranged to get the mother dog desexed to prevent more unwanted puppies being born." MORE>>

Well, maybe the person or people who put the puppies there were too afraid to call for help like the SPCA. Perhpas they felt that they'd be vilified for not de-sexing their bitch. How knows what people think.

I know that if you wanted to give your dog away in Chch and you rang the SPCA, they would tell you that they wouldn't take him... that's not what they do.
