March: Abandoned Puppy Tied To Sign
An eight week old puppy with a hernia has been left tied to a road sign near an RSPCA centre in March.
RSPCA inspectors are now trying to find whoever abandoned the chocolate-coloured spaniel [pictured - right] at Block Fen on Tuesday (5 February).
The charity says she is now 'eating well and full of life'.
Jackie Williams, RSPCA manager of Block Fen animal centre, said: “We have called her Freya and she is eating well and full of life.
Like all spaniels she is a handful, needing lots of attention and training.
We are hoping a vet can repair the hernia and then she will be put up for rehoming."
According to the RSPCA, Anybody caught abandoning an animal like this can face jail and a fine of up to £5,000.
RSPCA inspector Jon Knight said: "I am hoping someone will have seen who left her there.
We have no idea how long she was tied to the post before she was found.
The cold we have been experiencing means that anything left out, especially a baby animal which may not be able to regulate its temperature properly, is put in a life threatening position.
Anybody with information is asked to call the RSPCA inspector information line on 0300 123 8018.
