A tragic dog has been found dumped in Kirklees.
The elderly dog suffering from a large tumour was found tied to a lamp-post in Hunsworth near Cleckheaton yesterday.
The dog was rescued by the RSPCA and taken to a vet and is now in stray kennels at Hoylandswaine in Barnsley while the RPSCA is trying to trace the owner.
Chief Inspector Matt Bell said: “We just need to know if there is an owner out there who has lost this poor old dog.
“It may be that the dog is being treated by a vet for the tumour and the dog accidently strayed, but we need to speak to the owner to find out what has happened.”
Anyone with any information is asked to contact the RSPCA as soon as possible on 03001234999. All calls will be treated in confidence.
