The Scottish SPCA is seeking information after a dog was dumped at Ayr railway station with nothing but a suitcase.
Kai, a male shar-pei crossbreed, was discovered tied to a railing outside the station with a suitcase containing a number of belongings, including a pillow, toy, food bowl and food, according to a press release.
“We contacted the owner registered to the microchip, who stated they had sold Kai on Gumtree in 2013. Unfortunately they could not tell us the address of the person who bought him,” Inspector Taylor told the SPCA.
“Regardless of the fact Kai was left with his belongings, this was still a cruel incident and we are keen to identify the person responsible,” he said. “If anyone can help we would ask them to get in touch as soon as possible.”
The Scottish SPCA will be taking care of Kai during the investigation.
“Kai is around two to three years old and is a lovely dog with a nice nature. We will look after him until we can find him a permanent and loving home.”
According to the Scotland’s Animal Health and Welfare Act of 2006, anyone found guilty of abandoning an animal can expect to be banned from keeping animals for a fixed period or life.
