Week old puppies dumped with trash
These week old puppies were found by a resident of the Belair area dumped along with trash early Wednesday morning in the large Belair trash bin.
Sint Maarten PRIDE foundation was notified and immediately took the 6 puppies with their eyes barely opened to the Cay hill vet. Sint Maarten PRIDE foundation is appealing to the general public that unwanted puppies are not to be left at trash dumpsters as trash, they are living creatures.
This is not the first time our foundation and Belair residents have found unwanted puppies at this location, although this is the first time they have been dumped so small.
The general public is advised to sterilise their pets in order not to bring unwanted animals into this world. Unwanted puppies and kittens should be taken to the local vets where they can be taken in for adoption or euthanised in a humanly manner.
PRIDE foundation understand that at the moment there are so many dogs waiting for adoption and might be put down this week as space at the local vets are needed for boarding.
Our foundation is requesting the local government to speedily make haste with the setting up of the animal shelter. The general public is also asked to educate themselves on proper care for their pets and make themsleves available to volunteer for the various animal protection and environmental groups.
Sint Maarten PRIDE thanks the Clean Sint Maarten N.V. trash collection crew who helped with the handling of the puppies at the site.
