In the space of just one month, another dog has been found abandoned and tied to a tree.
It comes after a male American Staffordshire Bull Terrier cross was found deceased and tied to a tree in Wyampa Road, Bald Hills on August 14.
On Tuesday the 20th of September at Tovey Park, Parklands Drive, Boronia Heights, a large tan male Mastiff cross was found tied to tree with puncture injuries to his neck and marker drawings covering his body.
The dog was rescued by an RSPCA Inspector and is now receiving veterinary care at the RSPCA.
Investigations have not yet determined who owns this dog and how it came to be injured and abandoned.
Anyone with information about this dog, or who may have seen someone in the area with the dog is urged to contact the RSPCA on 1300 ANIMAL (1300 264 625).
RSPCA Queensland spokesperson Emma Lagoon says, “We need to see an end to this type of animal abandonment and neglect.
“It’s absolutely not ok to leave an injured dog tied to a tree. As for the markings, it’s plain disrespectful.
Ms Lagoon says, “Ás you can imagine, this poor dog is quite scared and is getting all the care he needs right now to hopefully overcome his ordeal and make a full recovery.”
The RSPCA is urging pet owners: “Please ask for help. We can help rehome pets when people have no other options.”
