A PUPPY which was abandoned and left in a box by its owners is looking for a new home.Molly (pictured above) was found with her sister Holly in a cardboard box by the Blind Yeo in Clevedon by a passer-by early one morning.The 12-week-old Labrador crosses were taken straight to Holly Hedge Animal Sanctuary in Barrow Gurney where staff have been looking after them ever since.And although Holly has already found a loving, new home, little Molly is still looking for someone special to love her.Holly Hedge Animal Sanctuary founder Pauline Leeson said: "They were dumped in a cardboard box."The person who discovered them had been walking their own dog which sniffed the puppies out."If they had got out of the box they may not have survived as they could have been attacked by other wildlife or fallen into the water."Mrs Leeson said Molly wanted a caring, family home with lots of cuddles to give. She added: "She is such a sweet little dog and needs a family which can give her lots of love and affection."Molly and Holly are not the only pups to find their way to the sanctuary. Little Crystal, who staff have since discovered is deaf, was found wandering in the road near the centre at Wild Country Lane.And Megan, a German Shepherd cross, was discovered dumped with her four pups in Dundry.Mrs Leeson added: "This year there has been a real invasion of puppies - at one time we had 25 in the centre. There is no reason ever for people to dump an animal while charities such as us exist."Anyone who can give any of the abandoned animals a home should contact the sanctuary on 01275 474719.
