Causeway Coast Dog Rescue have put out an appeal for information after two Pomeranian dogs were found dumped near some wind turbines.
The rescue centre explained that they had been contacted by a member of the public found the two dogs abandoned near some wind turbines on Wednesday evening. They continued to explain, “Nothing could have prepared us for what arrived into our care that night. Two little Poms a female who we named Angel and a male who for the time being has been named Wee Man, approximately two-three years old…babies really!
“Angel’s little body was almost completely bald, demodex mange having ravaged her body, she was emaciated beyond belief and so frail. Angel died in the early hours of Thursday morning we were unable to save her, her body could take no more abuse. She died of starvation, this means she had not one ounce of food in her body for at least three weeks.
“Wee Man is in a similar condition his tiny body is also ravaged with demodex mange, he is painfully thin and frail but he’s still fighting! “His will to live is amazing. He is currently receiving around the clock care with our vets at Roe Valley Veterinary Clinic in Limavady”.
The centre, in an appeal for anyone with information to come forward added “These dogs were found by a member of the public in an isolated area inside a bag and dumped in a ditch in Strabane where the wind turbines are located. They were dumped there in the hope they would never be found- in the hope they would die and be forgotten about”. Anyone with information about what happened the dogs is asked to contact the authorities.
