Abandoned 10 year old Stafford Bitch needs saving

21st January 2011 - A tragic set of circumstances has been brought to our attention.  Recently, a little O.A.P. bitch (believed to be around ten years of age) was thrown from a car on the M27 Motorway.  She is in a foster home now but will be put to sleep on Monday 24th if a home is not found for her.  She is in the care of the Havant dog warden, Pam McDonald, who can be reached on 07966 516346.  If anyone can help in any way, please do.  Apologies for the short notice, but as is often the way with these terrible stories we only found out at the last minute.
