RSCPA NSW and Dog Rescue Newcastle are today proud to announce that Doris, a beautiful female English Staffordshire Terrier that was found dumped on the side of a road in a hessian bag in Mandalong has made a full recovery and is now looking for a new home.

“Despite the circumstances under which she came into our care, Doris has made a great recovery with the help of the team at RSPCA Hunter Shelter Rutherford” said Brendon Neilly, Executive Manager - Animal Care Services, RSPCA NSW

Doris’ story made headlines back in April when the disturbing news of her abandonment was reported via the local media. She was brought to the RSPCA Hunter Shelter Rutherford for veterinary care and has since made an exceptional recovery. Doris was transferred to the care of Dog Rescue Newcastle last week where she will remain in foster care while she adjusts to being in a home environment again.

"Doris's story touched our hearts when we first read of her abandonment on the side of a road. Her new life began with the care of the team at Cooranbong Animal Hospital & RSPCA Rutherford and we look forward to helping Doris adjust to a new home and loving family,” said Fredric Holten, Dog Rescue Newcastle.

“Dog Rescue Newcastle believes the cooperation between our group and RSPCA Rutherford is an example of positive companion animal rescue management. Dog Rescue Newcastle looks forward to more opportunities to work alongside RSPCA Rutherford in re-homing companion animals in our region,” Mr Holten added.

If you are interested in adopting Doris, you can find more information about her on the Dog Rescue Newcastle website, Facebook page and the Pet Rescue website.
