THE RSPCA is appealing for help to trace the owner of a dog which was found tied to a tree late at night in High Barns, Ely.
The dog, which has been called Jenny, was found on Sunday, March 21 at around 10pm, by a member of the public who contacted the local dog warden.
Jenny is white and tan in colour and around five-years-old, she is a Whippet and Jack Russell terrier cross breed.
When found she was very thin, with long overgrown nails and she has also been diagnosed with a long-term eye condition.
The dog warden collected the dog and passed her on to the RSPCA the next day. She was then taken to Wood Green Animal Shelters, where she is currently being cared for.
RSPCA Inspector Richard Lythgoe, said: "She was in a very poorly condition when she was brought to us, but she has now started to gain some weight.

"We are keen to hear from anyone who may have any information regarding the owner of this dog, or who may recognise the description of her, and we would urge them to get in touch with the RSPCA as soon as possible."
Inspector Lythgoe also wanted to stress that if anyone does have an animal they struggling to care for, then they must seek help at the earliest opportunity, and not resort to dumping an animal if they find they cannot cope anymore.
