The RSPCA has issued a second appeal after eight more dogs were found dumped on the same day that seven were discovered abandoned on a remote Norfolk road.

The animal welfare charity has revealed that four Newfoundland dogs, two Cockapoos and two Lhasa-apsos were dumped eighty miles away in the village of Redmile, between Nottingham and Grantham, in Leicestershire, on Monday October 15.

It comes following the discovery of seven other matted Newfoundlands found abandoned in Syderstone, near Fakenham .

Inspector Kate Burris said: “It is absolutely heartbreaking to see the condition these dogs have been left in. I don’t know how anyone could let them get into such a state.

“It’s as if they have never seen the light of day, or been on a lead. They are lovely, friendly dogs but just totally scared.

“They are skinny and all of the dogs’ fur is incredibly matted and covered in faeces. It is possible, due to the breed of the dogs, that they have been used for breeding and then dumped when they were no longer useful.

“The RSPCA does not often see dogs of these breeds so it seems coincidental that this has happened relatively close to where seven Newfoundlands were found in a similar state on Monday.

“We don’t know if the incidents are linked but it is certainly plausible. We hope that a member of the public may recognise these dogs or have some information for us.”

The dogs were taken to RSPCA Radcliffe in Radcliffe on Trent to be examined by vets and treated.

Ms Burris added: “RSPCA Radcliffe were amazing and I couldn’t thank them enough for responding so quickly when we arrived with so many dogs that all needed immediate attention.”

The dog warden was made aware of the dogs early in the morning on Tuesday October 16 and called the RSPCA due to the poor condition they were in.

- Anyone with information about this incident, or the incident in Norfolk , is asked to contact the RSPCA inspectorate appeal line in confidence on 0300 123 8018.
