ISPCA appeal for homes for three abandoned puppies found in Westmeath
Look at their little faces.
The Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals are looking for homes for three little puppers after they recently responded to a call from a concerned citizen when they heard whimpering coming from their garden, just outside the village of Ballymore in Westmeath.
Upon arrival, they discovered three three collie/terrier type puppies no more than 10 weeks old.
The little doggos, later called Liam, Fifi and Tomas, were transported to the ISPCA National Animal Centre, where they received veterinary assessment.
ISPCA Inspector Reynolds said: "Apart from being cold and hungry, the puppies did not appear to have health issues. It was unclear how long they had been there and as soon as they arrived at the Centre, they were placed under a heat lamp and were monitored closely. They are continuing to thrive and will be looking for new, loving homes for them soon.
Inspector Reynolds added: "I just don’t understand how anyone could just abandon three defenceless little puppies and I am so glad we are able to give them the life they deserve, in kind loving new homes. Of course this all could have been avoided if the puppies’ mother had been neutered. Neutering is absolutely key to reducing the numbers of unwanted animals in Ireland."
Anybody with any information is asked to contact the ISPCA National Animal Cruelty Helpline on 1890 515 515 or report online here.
