RSPCA renews appeal after dying dog dumped at the roadside
The RSPCA has renewed an appeal for information after a severely neglected dog was heartlessly dumped beside a road in Birmingham.
The German Shepherd had been abandoned at the time he needed help the most - with the dog screaming in agony and unable to stand because of a huge testicular tumour and injury to his jaw.
He had been left on top of a blanket that had been dumped in a bush beside Park Lane near Handsworth Cemetery on Sunday, March 5. He was found at around 8am by a member of the public who contacted the charity for help.
RSPCA animal rescue officer Cara Gibbons, who is investigating for the animal welfare charity, is appealing to the public for any information about the person responsible.
This poor dog was in the worst state I have ever seen a living animal. He was terrified and in terrible pain. He was so scared and confused. It's sickening that someone allowed him to get in this state, and even more distressing to think they simply dumped him in this way rather than getting him the help he desperately needed.
I'm determined to track down whoever was responsible for leaving him to suffer in such a cruel and heartless way.
Someone, somewhere must know who owned this dog so I'm calling on anyone with information to contact me in complete confidence, by leaving me a message on our inspector's appeal line number on 0300 123 8018.
We've had lots of people contact us who share our shock and horror that anyone would do this, and we're grateful for their support and kind words, but we're yet to hear from anyone with information that can help us bring whoever is responsible to justice.
