These four adorable puppies were abandoned on a train this morning.

The cute foursome were discovered in the toilet of a train at Sutton station this morning. The man who found them took them to Sutton police station.

The puppies

Officers believe the mixed spaniel cross puppies may have been neglected or mistreated as they were in poor condition and extremely nervous around people.

The puppies were transferred into two larger cardboard boxes to make them more comfortable for the train journey to the Riverside Animal Centre in Beddington Park where they are being checked over, treated and hopefully rehomed.

Sergeant Gavin Weldon, of Sutton police's safer parks team, said: "Cruelty to animals is unacceptable and won't be tolerated and offenders can expect to be dealt with robustly. We are working with our partners at Riverside to give these puppies the happy start in life they deserve in good homes in the borough."

If you know who left the puppies on the train or have any other information, you can call police on 101 or the charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. If you are interested in rehoming the puppies, contact the Riverside Animal Centre on 020 8669 8877.

I know this is better than might have happened to them, but might I suggest that Southern or FCC check the CCTV system on the train involved. Then this nasty person can be put before the authorities.

Well done the police for taking an interest in the welfare of these poor pups and putting them on the right road. From what I've read LFB management, another emergency service, can't be bothered anymore to assist animals.

I wish the pups all the best. The person may have been desperate, as a lot of rescue centres are full. They could have been trying to do their best in terrible circumstances. Spread the rehoming word, and promote neutering and speying!
