130 Hoarded Calif. dogs await rescue groups
LOS ANGELES (AP) — More than 130 dogs saved from a hoarder in California two weeks ago need to be saved again — but only rescue groups can save them now.
The dogs were seized from Rainbow's End Animal Sanctuary in Apple Valley on June 18, where they had been living in one large pack for years without proper food, medical care or human interaction, San Bernardino County Animal Care and Control officials said........
Any nonprofit rescue group in the country with the proper credentials can save a dog, Smith said. The rescue groups will have to provide transportation for the dogs too......
Soon they will have to free up kennel space for new dogs and if they don't find sponsors for the 130 dogs, they will have to be euthanized, Smith said.......more at link.....
If you are in a rescue group or know of one in your area, please alert them to this situation.
