The Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in Scotland, is asking for the public’s help in finding the person who abandoned a dog.
The dog was found at the Ayr railway station along with a suitcase.
The male yellow lab mix crossbreed was discovered tied to a railing outside the station. The suitcase included a number of the dog’s belongings, such as food, a food bowl, a pillow and toys.
Inspector Stewart Taylor said that the dog had a microchip and that they were able to find out that the dog’s name is Kai.
The SPCA contacted the owner through the information on the microchip, but the owner said that they had sold Kai to someone after posting a for sale advertisement on the Internet.
Unfortunately, they did not know the address of the person who bought the dog.
“This case highlights the potential consequences of selling an animal on the Internet, as it often leads to the impulse buying of pets that people know very little about,” the SPCA said.
“Regardless of the fact, Kai was left alone with its belongings. This was still a cruel incident and we want to identify the person responsible,” they added.
Kai is around two to three years old, and is a lovely dog. The SPCA will care for the dog until they can find a permanent and loving home for the animal.
Abandoning an animal is an offense under the Animal Health and Welfare (Scotland) Act 2006, and anyone found guilty of doing so can be banned from keeping animals for a fixed period or for life.
