Pals Tango and Cash were abandoned in a pet carrier under a hedge in Herefordshire.
A pair of chihuahuas that were dumped in a pet carrier under a hedge in Herefordshire have been rescued by the RSPCA.
The two male dogs, now named Tango and Cash, were found abandoned near to the Small Breeds Park on Kingswood Road in Kington on 16 July and RSPCA inspectors are appealing for information about what happened to them.
Inspector Suzi Smith said: “These two poor boys were left shut in a pet carrier and dumped. They are such sweet little chaps it is heartbreaking to think someone would just dump them so callously.
“If the kind-hearted member of the public had not found them we dread to think what would’ve happened to them.
“Considering what happened to them they are doing well thankfully, even though they do have some existing health issues.
“We would urge anyone who may recognise them or knows what happened to them to contact us as soon as possible.”
Every year the RSPCA is called out to rescue hundreds of animals across England and Wales after their owners abandon them and in many cases leave them for dead and new figures show on average one animal is abandoned every hour throughout the summer.
In summer 2015 2,812 animals were rescued by the animal welfare charity with a peak in admissions in July.
Anyone with information about Tango and Cash is urged to contact the RSPCA Inspectorate Appeal Line on 0300 123 8018.
