Young pups abandoned in Tombrack ditch
On Thursday, April 4 the North Wexford SPCA received a call about some puppies that had been abandoned in a ditch in Tombrack, near Ferns.
When the NWSPCA inspectors arrived, they found seven young dogs of about three to four weeks old trapped in a box, which had been taped over shut. The dogs are of a mixed breed and vary in colours from black to light and dark golden.
A staff member said that 'The box was sealed with packing tape so the pups could not get out, and they where cold, terrified, shaking and starving'.
He continued to explain that the team did not know how long they had been out there but the team are happy to report that the dogs are now in the care of the NWSPCA.
The dogs will be put up for adoption to their forever home once they have returned to better health and have been vaccinated, micro-chipped and wormed. 'They will be checked over by the vet and given some much needed care and kindness before re-homing them,' said the staff member. The incident has been reported to the local dog warden.
