On a cold winter night earlier this year, little Franklin was abandoned by his family and cruelly dumped in a park in a cardboard box. Just four weeks old, Franklin weighed only 800 grams and was so tiny he could fit in the palm of your hand.
Franklin had no food, no water and nothing but the empty cardboard box to keep him warm. He was all alone, abandoned by the very people supposed to be looking after him and keeping him safe.
Fortunately, a kind lady heard Franklin’s desperate little cries and brought him to the SPCA, knowing it was the safest place for him. Here at SPCA Auckland, Franklin was taken to our specialist unit for puppies and was cared for by one of our kindhearted Canine Attendants, Sarah.
