Puppies rescued after drug bust

2014-06-26 00:00

TWO puppies that showed signs of neglect were rescued from the Everton Road home by SPCA inspectors yesterday.

The dogs were discovered in a small courtyard when tactical police raided the plush Kloof drug den on Tuesday night.

The animals, both only several weeks old, had been left in the cold and showed signs of malnutrition.

On the night of the raid, while scores of police combed the scenes for evidence, an officer left and returned with food to feed the puppies.

The shivering puppies were somewhat side-lined until the SPCA inspector arrived.

Escorted by stone-faced police officers, Inspector Nhlanhla Mvulane emerged from the police cordon with both dogs.

“I consider these animals to be neglected and I have marked abandoned on my report because they were left unattended for a prolonged period of time,” he said.

He added that the puppies would be taken to the Kloof and Highway SPCA for further examination.
