Tiny Pups Find Comfort in Each Other’s Embrace After Being Abandoned at the Doorstep

Newbσrn Ρuρρies Cuddling Each Other After Being Dumρed σn Their Dσσrsteρ and Left Alσne

A group of five tiny puppies were cruelly abandoned on a doorstep in South London, leaving them with no hope for survival. Among them, two were only a few days old and required immediate attention from the RSPCA’s animal welfare team.

With the cost of living on the rise, many households in the UK are facing financial pressure and unfortunately, this has led to a surge in the number of abandoned pets. The RSPCA has reported a significant increase in dumped animals, with a 17% rise from 2020 to 2021 and a further 24% increase in 2022. Recently, the animal welfare organization’s frontline team discovered five newborn puppies left to die on a doorstep in Morden, South London. Heart-wrenching photos captured the litter huddled together in a blanket to keep warm. While three of the pups are believed to be around five weeks old, the other two are mere days old.

A heartwarming photo of two puppies cuddling together went viral after their rescue. The RSPCA informed its followers that the puppies were abandoned on a doorstep in Morden. While two puppies are being hand-reared, the other three are around five to six weeks old and weaned, but have scabbing. Sadly, these adorable golden pups are not yet ready for adoption as they require extensive care. However, once they are healthy, they will be posted on the RSPCA rehoming website in hopes of finding loving families. This incident comes just days after five newborn puppies were discovered with umbilical cords still attached and abandoned in the woods in Sheffield.

The amount of puppies being left behind in the United Kingdom is growing rapidly. These innocent animals, who are born extremely fragile and helpless, fortunately received urgent care around the clock. The animal welfare organization is concerned that the increase in pet ownership during the pandemic, accompanied by the financial difficulties people are facing due to the cost of living, indicates that even more animals will be abandoned this year. Last year, dogs were the most widely abandoned pets, with 14,462 cases of abandoned dogs reported to the RSPCA. Deputy Chief Inspector Sara Jordan said, “We understand times are hard, and many families are struggling to cope, particularly with the increased cost of living. We fear that we will see many more pets being given up or abandoned because their owners have nowhere else to turn. However, abandoning young puppies is both irresponsible and cruel. Please do not abandon your pets, but seek assistance before things become too dire.”
