TWO adult dogs and two puppies were found dumped in sacks outside the Lower South Coast SPCA on Sunday morning. According to the SPCA’s marketing manager Dalene Erasmus, this was not the first time that animals were dumped in this manner outside their premises after hours. The animals survived the ordeal, however, enclosed in sacks, they may not have been so lucky had they not been found when they were. Erasmus said the organisation welcomes unwanted pets, but they should not be dumped carelessly.“We do appreciate that people would rather bring their unwanted animals to us rather than just dump them somewhere,” said Erasmus.“We would just like to request that when surrendering the animals, they are put into our after-hours kennels and not tied in bags,” she said.The SPCA after-hours kennels are situated outside the premises and are easily accessible for residents even when there is no one to assist them at the offices. “It’s easy to place the animal in the after-hours kennel.“Simply put the animal in the cage, where there is water and food, and once the animal is safe in the kennel, lock the locker on the gate,” said Erasmus. “Please do the responsible deed and ensure that your animal is safe until our staff remove the animal and place it into our clinic kennels,” said Erasmus. For any assistance in surrendering your pet or any other queries, phone the emergency number at 083 222 6355.
