Puppy abandoned in freezing temperatures

Someone abandoned a 5-week-old pup in freezing temperatures

A five-week-old puppy is lucky to be alive right now. On Friday night, in the midst of a bitter cold snap, someone abandoned the tiny puppy on the loading dock of the SPCA of Wake County in Raleigh, North Carolina.

The shelter used the frightening situation as a reminder to everyone that pets should not be left outside in freezing temperatures. On the animal shelter’s Facebook page, the words of warning were shared:

“Please bring pets inside during these cold temperatures and if you can no longer keep your pet, please contact your local county animal shelter. (The SPCA of Wake County is a limited admission shelter and primarily takes in animals from area county shelters)”

As well as a few words about the danger that the pup, dubbed Donut, faced if someone hadn’t found her in time:

“Donut the puppy was found last night, abandoned and shivering all alone on our loading dock. Had a staff member not found her at 8:30 pm, she likely would not have survived the freezing overnight temperatures.”

Donut is now warm and safe. You can help others like her at this link to the shelter’s donation site.

    Anyone abandoning a five week puppy outside in the cold weather is a heartless sub-human slim who doesn’t deserve to walk free. Donut is a baby and would definitely died, if not found. I wonder what happened to the mama dog and rest of the litter. Donut is too young to be taken away from the mama dog and siblings.

    All I ask is that the person that dumped a 5 wk old pup out in the cold be left out for one night. I think that is a message they would “get”.

    ANYONE who would do this to a tiny puppy needs a massive dose of street justice – the SPCA can ‘remind’ people all they want, those that think of animals as lesser beings will continue to treat them like trash. The bastard who did this to Donut should have been an abortion, not a birth. May they get their just dues, a drive-by and left to rot in the gutter.
