The other pup, who is just five weeks old and should still be with his mum, is now fighting for his life at one of the charity's veterinary hospitals.

Mr Heyes said: “A passerby discovered the two tiny pups inside a cardboard box dumped in a hedge at the park while he was watching cricket nearby.

"He heard a noise and went to investigate.

“The puppies are only around five weeks old and both were very weak and sick.

“These pups were too young to be separated from their mother and were clearly not in a good way so to abandon them to fend for themselves is awful.

"I’m now concerned about their mother and any other littermates who could also need veterinary treatment.”
