Four spaniel puppies were abandoned in a garden in Surrey with a skin disease so severe they were almost completely bald.

The puppies, thought to be six weeks old, were left inside a bucket at an address in Redhill. They were found by the person living there who contacted the RSPCA.

These puppies have really been through it, and it breaks my heart to see them in such a state, they must be so uncomfortable.

There was no CCTV from the area and no one witnessed the puppies being dumped.

Anyone with information about where they may have come from can contact the RSPCA in confidence on the inspector’s appeal line on 0300 123 8018.
