ISPCA Chief Inspector Conor Dowling responded to a call regarding two Jack Russell Terriers in Co Wicklow recently.
The dogs are a mother and daughter and Inspector Dowling was shocked to discover them living in a dirty garden and were extremely underweight.
Inspector Dowling said: “It was immediately apparent that both dogs were severely malnourished, all of their bones were visible through their skin.”
The dogs named Daisy and Diva were surrendered to the care of the ISPCA and transported for immediate veterinary treatment, and later transferred to the ISPCA National Animal Centre for rehabilitation and once they were well enough for rehoming.
“I’m just glad that we received the call in time”, added Chief Inspector Dowling. “These dogs were in such poor condition, I’m not sure how much longer they would have survived.” An investigation is ongoing.
We are happy Diva the puppy has already found a new home and we are now appealing for a new home for Daisy. She is a very friendly and outgoing little dog and will make a fantastic addition to any family.
If you have room in your home and heart for Daisy, your new best friend could be waiting at the ISPCA National Animal Centre. For further information, call 043 3325035, email firstname.lastname@example.org or read more about Daisy here.
