Dogs abandoned near flooded river
THE RSPCA is appealing for information after two dogs were found abandoned close to a flooded river.
The animal welfare charity received a call on Monday from a concerned member of the public who found the two dogs tied with twine to a tree at Trentside in Gunthorpe.
The dogs were taken to the RSPCA Radcliffe Animal Shelter and although one of the dogs was microchipped they haven't been able to find the owner.
The first dog is a young female adult Jack Russell Terrier, black and white in colour, and the second is a male dark brindle Staffordshire bull terrier puppy.

Simon Parker, RSPCA chief inspector, said: "These two dogs were left very close to a flooded area near the River Trent and part of the area had already been under water.
"There was a clear risk that if the water rose again these dogs would have been in extreme danger.
"It is lucky that they were spotted by a passerby and we thank them for all their help.
"It is completely irresponsible to abandon dogs in such a dangerous place on what was a cold and windy day.
"We are investigating this and would appeal to anyone who has any information to call the RSPCA inspector appeal line on 0300 123 8018."
