UPDATE 23 August: The guardian angels at Herds to Homes rescue have offered foster care for these babies and they will be going into care later today. Thanks guys!
ABANDONED PUPS - Pups are Cattledog type mixed breed, around 10 weeks old, 2 male & 2 female, and were huddled together near the carpark at the Blue Hole swimming area, east of Armidale where they had obviously been dumped.
These pups have had little social training and were very wormy. The shelter will be housing them for a couple day's before making them available for adoption & foster care. Last night they were wormed and given short term Parvo Virus vaccinations. They ate well and certainly left plenty of evidence that they at least have great bowel function! We'll observe and carry out health checks until Thursday and be looking for carers or new homes from Thursday. All of our local carers are supplied through RSPCA Armidale branch and if you are interested in becoming a foster carer for one or all of these pups please ring me - 6771 5498 - or contact the RSPCA branch ASAP.
As always, if you have any information which would lead to the conviction of the offender please contact the RSPCA, the Police or the Companion Animals Shelter.
