RSPCA seeks Fenland people in need of puppy love as it looks to rehome Staffy cross and lurcher cross

STAFF at a Fenland animal shelter are looking for people in need of some puppy love as they look for new homes for two puppies.

Love is already in the air at the RSPCA’s Block Fen Animal Centre near Wimblington, as staff have fallen for the two little pups which came in to their care after they were neglected by their previous owners.

But now they need to find new owners for the pups, who have been named Cupid and Tinsel.

Cupid is a male Staffy cross and three months old. His owner dumped him outside a vet’s surgery on Valentine’s Day and he was collected by the RSPCA and taken to Block Fen.

The brindle coloured pup has now been vaccinated and had his health check, and he is now ready to be rehomed.

Tinsel is a white lurcher/greyhound cross and she is three months old.

She came to the centre with her mum and two siblings when she was just a week old. They were all in a very bad way - her mum was very emaciated and not producing much milk.

However, once her mum started getting fed on a regular basis, the milk started to flow and the puppies survived. Both of Tinsel’s siblings have been found new homes.

Kennel supervisor Vicky Bradshaw said: “These little pups are amazing little characters, with great spirit, despite what they have been through.

“All the animals brought to the animal centre have had such an awful start in life, which is why we are always so desperate to find them loving new homes.

“These two both have a special place in our hearts, and now we just hope that the residents of Cambridgeshire will be able to offer them a new forever home, where they can enjoy the rest of their lives.

“If you are considering getting a new pet, please contact us first, as well as these two we have lots of dogs, cats and small furries looking for new homes.”

Block Fen Animal Centre is open from 11am-3.30pm every day except Wednesday. For more information contact the animal centre on 0300 123 0726.
