The Scottish SPCA is appealing for information after a dog was discovered tied to railings at unmanned Blackburn Police Station.

Scotland’s animal welfare charity was alerted after the elderly female, who is at least eight years old, was found tied up with a choke chain on Wednesday (13 September).

Inspector Alastair Adams said, “Whilst the dog is in good condition, she was left without food or water and the person who tied her up couldn’t have been sure that whoever found her would help her.

“We haven’t been able to locate any owner through her microchip so we’re asking locals to contact us if they recognise her and know who she may have belonged to.”

Abandoning an animal is an offence under the Animal Health and Welfare (Scotland) Act 2006. Anyone found guilty of doing so can expect to be banned from keeping animals for a fixed period or life.

Anyone with information is being urged to contact the Scottish SPCA Animal Helpline on 03000 999 999.
