Owner of rescued pooch joins appeal

Wednesday May 6th 2015

A man who gave a new home to a dog that had been abandoned at a railway station in Scotland is calling on other people to follow in his footsteps.

Ian Russell adopted Kai after the Shar-Pei crossbreed was dumped at Ayr station in January.

The pooch had just a suitcase of his belongings with him and news of his ordeal quickly spread around the world.

Hundreds of dog lovers from every corner of the globe came forward to offer Kai a home, but the Scottish SPCA, which rescued him, chose Mr Russell.

Now the 52-year-old, who adopted Kai three months ago this week, is urging anyone thinking of getting a pet to visit one of the charity's rescue centres.

It has hundreds of animals in its care, including dozens of dogs and cats, all wanting a new start in life. Scottish SPCA Rehoming Week - running from 4 to 10 May - hopes to find new homes for most of them.
