Abandoned puppies need good homes

THREE staffy-cross puppies are looking for a new home after being dumped on a front lawn in Killarney last week.

Two males and a female, all six weeks old and black except for small bits of white hair on their chests, are being looked after by Warwick Animal Welfare volunteer Ethel Thorne, who will keep taking care of them until someone adopts them.

“They’re just awesome and adorable; they always want to play,” Ms Thorne said.

“They’re cheerful and I’ve loved every single second of having them at my place

“I’m sure it won’t be long before they find a home and create a bond with their new owners.

“They deserve all the love and affection they can get.

“They can really be your best friends and cheer you up at all times.”

Ms Thorne has been taking in abandoned animals for about a year, and she said the satisfaction she gets from taking care of puppies was indescribable.

As for the three puppies, they are expected to grow up to be considerably larger than they are now.

They love to play, are always on the lookout for companionship and can create a bond with whoever is willing to give them a home and the affection they deserve.

Of course, the three puppies are not the only pets looking for a home.

Warwick Animal Welfare often gets calls from people about dumped puppies and kittens who need someone to care for them and provide food and shelter.

Many kittens and cats are in foster care right now, looking for a home, as volunteers try their hardest to make sure the animals get the care and love they desperately need so early in their lives.
