YOUR Humane Society SPCA Responds to 17 Puppies & Dogs in Crisis

Posted on Friday, June 7, 2019 at 8:25 am

YOUR Humane Society SPCA received a desperate plea for help from a family unable to get any local shelters or rescues to assist them as they stated they were all full. Our shelter is also full, but the family needed to surrender them immediately as they could not care for them adequately.
Carol Legrand, the shelter’s manager who is responsible for animal intakes, said, “our great team of staff and volunteers immediately went into ‘rescue mode’ and returned with 17 dogs, 12. They were flea infested and filthy, with the pups seeming quite weak, likely anemic from a parasite load and poor nutrition. Our team began with baths all around, then hand plucked all those last resilient fleas while drying everyone off, then served up some great meals.”

 

 

But YOUR Humane Society SPCA knows that 17 more lives saved will require help from their community. Their medical care, food, sheltering and more will be needed. They need your help to give these and the many other precious animals healthy happy lives.
