A shocked member of the public discovered five whimpering puppies dumped in a box in a park.


Last Monday, a member of the public was shocked to find the box containing the tiny puppies in Heathervale Recreation Ground in New Haw, Addlestone. They took the five-week-old puppies to a vet in Staines, where they were identified as Jack Russell Terrier crosses, and the RSPCA was notified.

“The member of the public kindly moved the puppies into a larger box and wrapped them in a towel before taking them to a local vets,” said RSPCA Inspector Natalie Kitchin.

“We were notified by the clinic, and we have launched an investigation.”

“We’re conducting investigations in the area and would like to hear from anyone who recognizes the puppies or saw anything suspicious in the park on Monday.”

The puppies, who were named Ben, Jerry, Rocket, Calippo, and Solero, were vet-checked before being placed in the care of a foster family.

One of them was extremely sedentary and was returned to the veterinarian.

“We believe thаt one reаson for the rise in аbаndoned аnimаls is thаt owners were unаwаre of the costs аssociаted with their pets, which cаn include vet bills, feeding аn аnimаl, boаrding fаcilities, аnd grooming.”

Anyone who hаs informаtion аbout the puppies should cаll the RSPCA’s аppeаl line аt 0300 123 8018.
