Six "beautiful" puppies have been found dumped in a village - sparking an RSPCA appeal to find their owners.
The young dogs were found abandoned in Broad Oak, just outside Canterbury.
The four spaniels and two terriers are now in the care of the RSPCA.
The animal charity estimates they are about four months old.
The organisation says they are "friendly and generally seem well, pending a vet visit", adding they have destroyed "a fair few toys" since arriving.
The RSPCA's Canterbury and district branch took to Facebook this morning to share a photo of the dogs, in a bid to track their owners in case the animals were stolen.
A spokesman wrote: "They are on hold with us for now and are not up for adoption just yet to see if we can track any potential original owners.
"If you recognise them please let us know."
The post has sparked many angry reactions from animal lovers, with one writing: "Who does that!? There is always an alternative! So glad they are safe with you."
The RSPCA has been approached for more details.
