The RSPCA is investigating after two dogs were found locked in a cage and dumped next to a busy main road.
It happened just days before another dog was found abandoned on the same stretch of road.
The two caged dogs - who have been named Almond and Cashew- were found next to the A46 in Beckington, Somerset at around 9am on Sunday 3 March.
On Thursday 14 March another dog, a male German Shepherd who has been named Teddy, was found tied to a bale of straw on the A36 near The Bell at Standerwick.
Anyone with information about the dogs is asked to call the RSPCA appeal line on 0300 123 8018 and leave a message.
