STAFF at the RSPCA Centre in Wimblington are hoping to find people in need of some puppy love as they appeal for new homes for two pups - including Cupid, who was dumped on Valentine’s Day.

Staff at the Block Fen Centre have fallen for the two pups which came in to their care after they were neglected by their previous owners.

But now they need to find new owners for Cupid and Tinsel. Cupid is a male Staffie cross and three months old. His owner dumped him outside a vet’s surgery on Valentine’s Day and he was collected by the RSPCA and taken to Block Fen.

The brindle coloured pup has been vaccinated and had his health check, and is ready to be rehomed.

Tinsel is a white lurcher/greyhound cross and she is also three months old. She came in with her mum and two siblings when she was just a week old, they were all in a very bad way. Her mum was very emaciated and not producing much milk.

However, once her mum started getting fed on a regular basis, the milk started to flow and the puppies survived. Both of Tinsel’s siblings have been found new homes.

Kennel supervisor Vicky Bradshaw said: “These little pups are amazing little characters, with great spirit, despite what they have been through.

“All the animals brought to the animal centre have had such an awful start in life, which is why we are always so desperate to find them loving new homes.

“If you are considering getting a new pet, contact us first, as well as these two we have lots of dogs, cats and small furries looking for new homes.”

Block Fen is open 11am to 3.30pm every day apart from Wednesday.

Contact the centre on 0300 123 0726.
