Discovered on an area located in Essex in England at the end of July, the small dogs were recovered. An investigation has been opened.
On July 29, a metal crate containing about twenty puppies was discovered on the motorway area located near Fryerning in Essex, England.
In the canteen, 14 male babies and 5 female babies were crowded. They were in panic and they huddled all against each other.
The British humane society, the RSPCA, was quickly dispatched to the scene in order to rescue the small dogs.
A small female did not survive
According to the first findings, it would be puppies from two or three different litters. They would be about 6 weeks old. They did not present no abuse however despite their abandonment.
The veterinarian who examined them could not save one of the little females. She had to be euthanized.
An open investigation
According to RSPCA investigators, the puppies are believed to have come from a clandestine breeding.
In the meantime, they will be available at adoption. An investigation has been opened to try to find the person or persons responsible for this abandonment.
