A mother dog and her badly neglected puppies were abandoned outside of a Leesburg, Florida, veterinary hospital on Mother’s Day. The shepherd mix and her four puppies were left in a cage outside of the business at some point during the night…they were found on Sunday, reports Fox 35 Orlando.
Lake County Animal Shelter Director Whitney Boylston told the news agency:
Leaving dogs alone outside of a business, even when it’s a vet’s office, really isn’t appropriate.
Though the mother dog appears to be relatively healthy, her puppies are suffering with an uncomfortable skin infection and they are malnourished. The abandoned family will be transferred to a rescue agency and nursed back to health before being offered for adoption.
Anyone with information about who abandoned this family is asked to reach out to 352-343-2101.
