A heartless man was caught on camera abandoning two dogs on the street outside an animal hospital.
Street surveillance video showed the man tying the canines to a bicycle stand at around 3pm on Thrusday, May 29, before walking away.
The two dogs, both female, were later brought inside the animal hospital by concerned staff.

One tan and white-coloured lurcher is thought be around five years old.
Upon examining the dog's condition, the dog was found to have milk coming from her teats and blood visible around the vulva area.
Staff members believed that the dog had recently given birth and was nursing puppies.
She also had an old fracture on her back left leg, which had healed over.
The other dog, named Xena according to the information found on the microchip, had an old scar on her face and body .
The chip also showed an address in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
RSPCA inspector Beth Fazackerly, told Manchester Evening News: "We're extremely concerned that there's a litter of puppies out there who will have been separated from their mum at a very early age.
"We don't know whether they're receiving the appropriate care they need at this vitally important time, if they're ill or indeed what may have happened to them.
"It's also very distressing for mum to be away from her pups, who may not be physically or mentally strong enough to cope on their own without her.
"Despite what's happened to them, both dogs have got lovely temperaments.
"They are very gentle and calm and we'll look to place them with loving new owners in due course.
"We're very keen to hear from anyone who recognises the man in the CCTV footage and we'd urge them to get in touch with us."
RSPCA is now looking to hear from people with information while staff take care of both dogs at a private kennel.
