This case of animal abuse happened in County Roscommon, Ireland and left everyone speechless.
An abandoned mommy dog was found tied to a fence together with her six newborn puppies, still nursing. The momma dog was helpless, and on top of that she had to feed her little ones.
Thankfully, a passerby noticed these poor souls and acted quick to alert the ISPCA who came and took the family to a safe place.
Later, they shared the story on their Facebook page along with some photos and people were outraged at the culprit who abandoned the dogs in such manner.
“This has to be the saddest picture I have ever seen,” one person wrote. “[And] that is saying a lot with so much cruelty around us.”
“Look at the fear and vulnerability in the poor dogs eyes,” another added “Darling animal. Am crying seeing this.”
ISPCA kept everyone interested in the fate of the doggy family updated – mommy Emmy Lou and her bundles of joy, Billy Ray, Dixie, Dolly, Dotty, June and Patsy were all perfectly healthy.
“To the kind-hearted animal lover who discovered them and alerted the Gardai and the ISPCA, we are so grateful,” they wrote. “We can’t help them without you so please continue to report cruelty, neglect or abuse.”
“Leaving a young dog only two years old tied up without water, food or shelter most definitely put her along with her young puppies’ lives at risk,”
ISPCA Center Manager Hugh O’Tool said. “I don’t understand how anyone can think it is okay to leave a dog tied to a gate to nurse her puppies.”
“With the recent level of rainfall and cold weather this week, the outcome could have been very different and I’m happy we were alerted so we could help them.”
