Puppies In Cardboard Box On Side Of The Road Found With Mange All Over Their Bodies

The dogs are being cared for and undergoing veterinary treatment.
The puppies were in a poor condition when found.
Cornwall Council’s Dog Welfare and Enforcement Team deals with about 1100 stray dogs every ear and manage to return over 90% to their owners (compared to the national average of 54%).
Virtually all of the others are rehomed, with only a handful being unable to be rehomed each year where there are very severe medical conditions and they are put to sleep under veterinary advice or where a dog is too aggressive to be rehomed.
