A dog owner who abandoned their pet at a church left behind a touching note in which they explained their reasons for their decisions.
According to what the owner wrote, they became homeless and had no money to provide for the things their dog needs and deserves.
The dog, who is a Staffie cross, was discovered by worshipers after the homeless person in question tied him to the altar of a church in Blackpool.
“Please believe me when I say I haven’t done this easily. My dog means the world to me and I don’t know what else to do,” the heartbreaking note read.
“I’ve no home or money now for him. Life has taken a really bad turn for me and I couldn’t imagine him being outside with me cold and hungry.
“He is a placid, friendly, loving dog. He will be seven years old on 22 March 2020. He has got quite tender front paws, I’ve been treating them for about a month now but they are still sore.”
As the homeless owner added, they hope that the pooch can find a loving home he deserves.
“I love you and I am so so so sorry xxxx,” the note concluded.
After the incident went viral, RSPCA inspector Will Lamping revealed that the dog is doing great and is being looked after.
“It’s so sad to read the note and see how much Cracker’s previous owner loved him. Unfortunately, sometimes life can throw some pretty tough things at people and circumstances can drastically change but it’s heartbreaking to think that someone out there is missing Cracker and wondering how he is doing,” he said.
“I’d really like to reassure them that he’s doing well and is getting lots of TLC. If no one comes forward to claim him then he’ll go to one of our re-homing centers and we’ll find him a wonderful new home.
“If anyone does come forward then I’d like to let them know they won’t be in any trouble and we’d like to chat to them and see how we might be able to help them and Cracker.”
