A few months back, a man came in to the clinic carrying a green canvas bag. It was during a real cold snap in the weather in Christchurch, and it had been raining for days. The man had found the bag behind a dumpster next to a tavern. Inside it were two very cold, very wet and very hungry 4 week old puppies. How long they had been there we weren’t too sure, but we doubt they would have survived the night.
The tavern was directly over the road from our veterinary clinic. The person that dumped the puppies didn’t even have the guts to cross the road and bring them to us.
We are very lucky to have wonderful friends ‘At the Vets’ who help us out when we are overflowing! The two pups were fostered for many months with a caring family who named them ‘Walter’ and ‘Tilly’. They have now found loving homes and are doing well.
