RSPCA WA is appealing for help in finding a man who dumped a badly injured dog at a Vet clinic in Noranda.

"What appeared to be a white courier style van pulled up outside the clinic and a man of Asian appearance dumped the dog in a box in the foyer," RSPCA WA Chief Inspector Amanda Swift said.

"He then went out to his vehicle and sped off," she said.

The dog appeared to have burns to most of its body and other injuries.

Noranda vets gave it emergency treatment before an RSPCA Inspector took him to Balcatta Vets for specialist care.

"Unfortunately the dog was so severely injured it had to be put to sleep," Chief Inspector Swift said.

"We are calling for anyone who may know his owner or who may have seen the white van at the Noranda Veterinary Clinic to come forward."

The dog was wearing a distinctive blue collar with brown paw prints.

"Failure to provide vet treatment is a serious offence," Chief Inspector Swift said. "Every animal is entitled to live free from hunger, thirst pain and distress."

If you witness any cruelty or neglect or know who dumped the dog call the RSPCA WA on 1300 CRUELTY.
