Freshfields Rescued two abandoned dogs that were left tied up at the side of the road
Freshfields Kennels Assistant Vikki Ferguson was driving home from our rescue centre on Thursday 14th April, when she spotted two dogs tied to a bush on the side of the road near East Lane, Ince Blundell.
Vikki said: “The dogs had clearly been well-cared for and as I approached them they seemed excited to see me. I took them back to Freshfields where our vet gave them an initial assessment. They are an un-neutered male and female, and it would appear that they come from the same household. The female shows signs of having had litters previously.”
”At the moment, we’re settling them in and making sure that they are warm, fed, safe and loved. We are not taking any rehoming enquiries until we have more information about their ages and background, and we’ll be carrying out some tests and scans in the next week or so.”
“We don’t know how these gorgeous dogs came to be in the sad situation of being abandoned in the road.“
Deb Hughes, PR and Communications Officer for Freshfields, said: “We must stress that we have no spaces in our Kennels at the moment, and we also have a very full Waiting List. We also know that many people are struggling in this very harsh economic climate. We would say to pet owners: if you are feeling desperate, please contact us before taking the risk of abandoning your pets in this way. We might be able to help point you in the direction of other rescue centres, or perhaps work with you to try and keep your pet in the home until we can offer further assistance, which may include seeking a foster placement.”
