THE Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is urging members of the public and pet owners to take good care of their pets and not leave them in situations where they can be subjected to cruelty.

The advice follows the impounding yesterday of two female dogs that were subjected to sheer cruelty by their owners at Laucala Beach, Suva.

SPCA public relations officer Irava Raki said the dogs were left on their own and became very weak.

"As a result the dogs have developed serious skin diseases and could have died if necessary measures were not taken by us," Ms Raki said.

She said when they went to get the dogs, the owners said the animals had not eaten despite being given food.
