Pups dumped by the dozen

Shocked animal welfare workers say the person who dumped a litter of pups in a rubbish bag is a coward.

The 12 puppies were only 10 days old when they were found in a Te Atatu South reserve.

Priya Sundar, who works at Waitakere’s Animal Welfare Centre, is disgusted and wants people to think twice before abandoning unwanted animals.

"It seems really heartless," she says. "There is no genuine reason for animal cruelty or animal neglect."

The puppies are now five weeks old and have been nursed back to full health.
