Ontario SPCA Renfrew County Animal Centre seeks donations to help care for abandoned puppies

OR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - Renfrew, ON (November 3, 2016) – The Ontario SPCA Renfrew County Animal Centre is appealing to the public for donations to help with the costs of caring for four puppies found in a garbage bag on the side of a road.

The puppies were discovered on Baseline Road South in Midland on October 14th. It is not known how long they had been there, but they were estimated to be between three and five days old and still had umbilical cords attached when they were found. They were rushed to the Ontario SPCA Midland & District Animal Centre before being brought to the Renfrew County Animal Centre, which had a nursing dog in its care.

“We continue to monitor their health, but the puppies are nursing well and growing with every passing day,” says Rachel Eden, Renfrew County Animal Centre Manager. “They have just turned three weeks old and they are very wiggly! They still like to sleep a lot, but when they aren’t sleeping they are moving around and exploring.”

The puppies are currently in foster care and are expected to be available for adoption in early December during a special adoption event hosted by the Ontario SPCA Renfrew County Animal Centre.

“It can be quite costly to care for puppies until they are old enough to be adopted, particularly when they have to overcome extra challenges,” says Eden. “That’s why we’re appealing to the public for help with the care of these puppies. The generosity of our community is what allows the Animal Centre to continue the life-saving work it does each and every day.”
