Staff were so shocked and saddened when someone rang and said they had found some puppies in a bin, we obviously told them to get them here as soon as possible.

They arrived and we took them to a cool area and checked them over, they were panting but miraculously all eight of them are okay and yes someone had put them in a bin.

We are so relieved that they are okay, they are absolutely lovely! As a rescue centre we are already full to brim as are most rescues any help with donations towards their care would be greatly appreciated.

The puppies were given a health check by staff, weighed, flea treated and wormed.

The puppies were then named and a kennel was found.
