Mother dog and her newborn pups dumped in a box SEALED with duct tape

Irresponsible owners getting rid of unwanted pets in the most disturbing ways is one of the biggest problems for animal welfare volunteers in Greece.

The huge number of stray dogs in Greece is compounded by people who keep un-spayed dogs in their back yards, chicken coops and garages, and then dump their puppies after every litter, making it someone else’s problem.

In the town of Karditsa, once this pet dog gave birth, the owner put her and her newborn babies in a cardboard box, sealed it with duct and also tied it with wire! He then left the box outside, in the snow.

Luckily for this mummy dog and her puppies, they were found in time. Many more are not so fortunate.
