5 puppies saved by Heart | Daily Express Online
Helping Animals Rescue Team (HERZ)
It goes without saying that harming animals is never acceptable. So whenever we see a furry friend in need of help, we always try our best to help them. It’s always heartbreaking when puppies are abandoned by their owners, but some cases are just particularly hideous. Throwing your pet away like trash is bad enough, but it’s too cruel to literally throw them into an awkward position.
Sometimes people are the worst … like those who abandoned five puppies in an predicament.
These pups were in dire need of veterinary attention, but it appears they have been numbly abandoned instead. A litter of five young pups was starved, emaciated and barely survived after being left in a small box in the substation by a heartless soul.
The four week old pups were found yesterday (Friday) at 3 p.m. and crawled on a patch of grass along a path that connects to the substations in Taman Mawar, Menggatal.
They trembled and trembled from hunger and cold. If we hadn’t got there on time, the pups would have been electrocuted. As bad as they were, we wouldn’t be surprised if they’d been out for a few days. To let her go like this to die a slow, painful death is just incredible.
Certainly, they could face a prison sentence of up to three years or a fine of over RM 100,000 or both according to the 2015 Sabah Animal Welfare Enactment.
It is unsettling how someone can be so cruel and heartless as to crate five vulnerable little pups to face an inevitable death. We have condemned the actions of those who harmed the puppies as abusive and unacceptable. There are just no words.
These five pups are lucky enough to be still alive thanks to the kind hearted member of the public who alerted us. It is unclear how long the pups were there, but they are now looked after at our foster home around the clock.
We are outraged by the cruel task and describe the dumper as “absolute larvae”. We hope you know what kind of scum you are and the pain your puppies must be in at the moment. Mentally and physically.
The purposely abandoned pups were extremely thin and sad – not only because they were thrown into the substation, but also because they were separated from their mother.
The litters were strewn with fleas and severely dehydrated – the puppies, no older than 20 days, were then taken to the vet and treated for hypothermia, hypoglycaemia and hunger before being taken to our foster home. Two of the puppies were doing very badly – they were covered in maggots and excrement and very, very dehydrated.
This is a tragedy in this day and age with so many animal welfare groups and places ready to care for these animals that the suffering of these animals could have been avoided.
The puppies are doing well, but they need intensive care because they are still very young and are now orphans, and the HEART team will continue to do this in the coming weeks.
HEART is investigating the case, hoping someone will provide information that will shed light on how the pups ended up like this in hopes of doing some justice and reuniting the family.
The situation could easily have been avoided if the puppy’s mother had been neutered or if the dog’s owner had asked HEART or other animal welfare organizations for help.
Spaying and neutering is the obvious solution to preventing unwanted puppies from being born in the first place.
