The Malta Society for Protection and Care of Animals (MSPCA) has issued a call for help as they continue to treat suffering abandoned dogs.
“How much more suffering will they endure? How can you let them get to this state and then abandon them to fend for themselves? When are we going to learn to respect animals?”
The animal protection society’s post sheds light on the state of the animals after they picked them up from the streets at 5:30am on Wednesday. Named Meg and Zeus, the dogs were vet-checked and were confirmed to be Parvo and Giardia positive, two infections which are seriously harmful to canines.
The male was reportedly covered in scars and bite marks, potentially from being used as a ‘bait dog’, a term used to describe a canine which is used to test another dog’s fighting instinct and is often injured or killed in the process.
