Puppy owners urged to come forward

IF YOU have recently taken four young puppies home, Pam Holmes of Grafton Animal Rescue is strongly encouraging you to contact her.

Ms Holmes is concerned the puppies, who were advertised as "free" by their elderly owner in last weekends Daily Examiner are too young to be given away as pets.

Ms Holmes contacted the women who was giving the puppies away and was told that four of them had already been taken. She is currently caring for the remaining three and estimates them to be "around 5 weeks old".

"The elderly women told me that a couple of young people had taken four of the pups that morning and had come back on Monday to see if there were any left," she said.

"The three pups that Grafton Animal Rescue has in care would be between 4-5 weeks old and they are far to young to be given away.  They need feeding several times a day, worming and appropriate care."

The NSW animal welfare code states that pups and kittens must be a minimum of 8 weeks old before they can go to new homes.

Ms Holmes is concerned for the health of the other four pups and would like the people who have taken them to contact her immediately at gar.inc@hotmail.com or phone The Daily Examiner on 66 430 513.
