Assisi Animal Sanctuary is Northern Ireland's largest independent animal welfare charity providing shelter for up to 200 companion animals - cats, dogs and rabbits.
Charity Reference No: NIC104594.
Nick Dwyer got the surprise of his life when walking in Colin Glen Forest with his dog on Saturday evening. He heard noises coming from a shoe box and when he looked inside he found 7 very small pups. They are only a few days old and could possibly be boxer crosses but it is still too early to say. Nick took the pups home and fed them several times during the night and then brought them to Assisi on Sunday. We very quickly found two foster homes for them where they will stay for the next 6 – 8 weeks. The pups will be very vulnerable for the next few days and more details will be posted later in the week.
Thanks to Nick for looking after them and bringing them to us and to our two foster carers for the commitment they are giving for the next 6 – 8 weeks.
If anyone is interested in becoming a foster carer, please ring the Sanctuary on 028 9181 2622 for more details.
