Puppies Abandoned On Hampshire Doorstep
The RSPCA is appealing for information after two puppies were abandoned in a shoe box on a doorstep in Hampshire.
When they opened the door they found a men's Timberland shoe box was sitting on the doorstop.
The member of the public cared for the puppies overnight and they were collected the next day by RSPCA inspector Jan Edwards, who took them to a local vets for treatment.
Inspector Edwards, who is investigating, said:
''Luckily, these puppies were found quickly so they were still fairly warm but they were quiet and no doubt stressed by their ordeal.
"Abandoning animals is cowardly and totally unacceptable and I would urge anyone with information about the person involved to please come forward."
Under the Animal Welfare Act 2006 anyone found guilty of causing unnecessary suffering to an animal faces up to six months in prison and/or a £20,000 fine.
