Eight dumped pups have found new homes

EIGHT labrador cross pups that were randomly dumped on a Burnett Heads doorstep a few weeks ago have found their fur-ever homes.

RSPCA Bundaberg second-in-charge Donna Wolgast said the black pups were handed in by a man who found them at his front door one morning, and had now been given the opportunity to live happy and healthy lives.

"That was a couple of weeks ago now. When they came to us they were quite little and too small for adoption. We popped them up for adoption recently and they sold really fast," she said.

"They were from the same litter and had beautiful natures. They were a great bunch of puppies."



Ms Wolgast said the dumping should serve as a reminder to pet owners to get their animals desexed.

"Puppies get dumped all the time because, unfortunately, people don't desex their pets," she said.

"There is a great opportunity now to do so because RSPCA have a program coming up called Operation Wanted which some of the local vets are involved as well."
