Earlier this week, Pet Alliance jumped into action to rescue 13 neglected dogs from a hoarding case in North Florida. The situation was first uncovered by the Humane Society of the United States and Dixie County Sheriff’s Office. On a 5-acre property, nearly 150 dogs lived outside in appalling conditions without access to food or water. Many dogs were found enclosed in hutches, stranded and drenched from recent rains. A camper van was filled with over two dozen small dogs — the floor caked in feces and urine.
After initial recovery efforts that included veterinary checks and sheltering from North Florida Animal Rescue, the dogs were then transported to rescue partners, including Pet Alliance, for placement.
While in our care, staff will perform a full assessment of the 13 dogs and provide them with whatever they need to get healthy and be ready for adoption. Many of them have severe skin conditions including missing fur, painful sores and itchy, inflamed skin. They will likely require several weeks of treatment before they can find their forever homes.
Your support will ensure these dogs have the care and love they need to get healthy and strong. Thanks to you, we can care for these dogs and all of the other animals in our shelter. Will you help us care for these 13 dogs?
