Emaciated Rottweilers nursed back to health at Leigh's Darby Kennels
7:20am Thursday 28th February 2013 in News
ANIMAL saviours are seeking new homes for two dogs they have rescued from the brink of death.
Faith and Hope are five and six year-old female Rottweilers who have been brought back to health by dedicated members of the PUP (Prevent Unwanted Pets) charity.
Leigh and Wigan PUP branch co-ordinator Sue Taylor explained: "They were very emaciated on arrival with us.
"Faith weighed 19.1 kg and Hope just 19kg – less than half what they should have been. Hope was almost dead. She had to be carried as she couldn't walk. Both were signed over to us as owner could no longer care for them."
Now back to tip-top condition Faith and Hope are ready to be rehomed either together or separately with responsible owners. They are currently being cared for at Darby Kennels in Leigh. If you could offer a good home to Faith or Hope call 07772 722709 to arrange to see them.
"They can be split up but they need to go to a home with no other pets and no small children. Their new home must have an enclosed back garden and we would first need to visit the home of prospective new owners to ensure that the animals will be happy and healthy in their new environment," said Sue.
The main aim of PUP is to neuter all pets, so that there are less unwanted animals in need of their help.
PUP is run by volunteers and every penny raised is used for the benefit of animals. PUP is always grateful for any donation so we can continue our work.
