Puppies face tough start to New Year
With no food or water and filthy coats, the 12 week old English Bull Terrier cross puppies were trapped inside a small box and were very scared and cold.

Battersea Dogs and Cats Home Centre Manager Kaye Mughal explains: We found the puppies in a small plastic box by our gate, so they were clearly dumped deliberately. Given the timing we’re worried they were bred as Christmas presents by someone looking to make a quick buck, but when they failed to sell they were disposed of. Dumping animals without food or water near a busy main road could have disastrous consequences, but thankfully we found these pups quickly, and they’re now recovering from their ordeal.

Discovered just hours before the dawn of 2013, Battersea staff decided to name them Midnight, Big Ben, Chimes, Bubbles and Fizz.

Between Christmas Eve and the 1st of January, the charity’s three centres received 96 dogs and 52 cats. They included 11 cats and 36 dogs at Battersea Old Windsor, half of which were strays.
