THE RSPCA is appealing for information after six puppies were found dumped in a black plastic bag.

The tiny black dogs were found yesterday morning at the gate of private boarding kennels near King's Lynn in Norfolk.

It is thought they had been left there some time during the night.

The Labrador-type puppies, three males and three females, are aged between a week and 10-days-old and still have their eyes shut.

Penny Skate, RSPCA re-homing coordinator for the Norfolk West branch, said: “The puppies are being cared for by fosterers and are responding well to being hand-fed.

“We are extremely concerned for the welfare of their mother as she would still be producing milk to feed them and could develop an infection or complications.

“Also, it is worrying to think about how the mother dog is being cared for if the owner is capable of dumping six tiny puppies with little thought for their well-being.”

- The RSPCA is asking anyone who has seen anything suspicious, or knows someone who until recently owned a black Labrador-type dog and puppies, to call 01485 541141 in confidence.
