The Huntingdon police department received a call one Sunday evening to inspect a house. They were surprised when they discovered that the property had 22 dogs. There were no humans around and it seemed that the dogs were left there to die.
Hoping for a helping hand
The police found a litter of puppies, one Norwich Terrier, thirteen Chihuahuas, and two Pit Bulls inside the house. All of the dogs were living in starvation and suffering from different medical conditions. The police saw how neglected the dogs were so they reached out immediately to Animal Rescue Corps (ARC).
Nowhere to be found
When ARC arrived in the area, they decided to talk to the neighbors to further understand the situation. They learned that the owners of the house have been missing for more than seven days. According to them, the dogs intentionally left the dogs to fend for themselves.
The police removed all of the dogs from the property and turned them over to ARC. The volunteers quickly ran a series of medical tests. The results showed that the dogs were suffering from alopecia, parasites, intestinal worms, dehydration, and mange.
Saved at last
The volunteers at ARC made sure that the dogs are cared for. Aside from finally having a place where they can sleep comfortably, the dogs are also given fresh water and nutritious food. It’s the first time since they were abandoned that they are receiving love and affection. They couldn’t be more grateful.
Animal cruelty charges
The cops found the owners who left the dogs to die. They were arrested and filed animal cruelty charges. The dogs, on the other hand, will be on their way to their forever homes once they have fully recovered. ARC has partnered with different organizations to make this possible.
