Puppies

These are just a few of the puppies we have had in the last 6 months.
Irresponsible owners allow their bitch to have puppies, thinking they will easily find homes for them...

When they find no one wants the puppies, they leave them at the gates of the refuge at night or early morning when no one will see them!


Sometimes they are six or seven weeks old and can be (hopefully) re-homed fairly quickly.
But we have the expense of vaccinating and worming them as soon as possible.


 Sometimes they are very much younger and need careful nursing and feeding.

Puppies have been found abandoned in cardboard boxes at only 10 days old, their eyes still shut!

Puppy milk is very expensive but we cannot put the puppies to sleep once they are more than a few days old.


They have to be housed separately from the other dogs, usually in a foster home, until they are old enough to be adopted or move into the refuge.


If they are kept with the older dogs they catch Parvo virus and die!


Usually they have fleas when they arrive, and often mange also...
This all has to be treated and it all costs money which we then cannot use to buy food!


Please help these innocent puppies! 

They did not ask to be born into a careless world! 

They do not deserve to die of starvation or disease!

They deserve the best start in life we can give them!

Please donate using the button at the top of this website...
Every penny goes to the care and feeding of these abandoned dogs!
