Humane Society Tacoma-Pierce County needs people to adopt dogs to make room for neglected animals – KIRO 7 News Seattle
PIERCE COUNTY, Wash .– The Tacoma-Pierce County Humane Society seeks to find certain pets forever homes, as they seek to make room for pets that have been found in deplorable conditions.
Eight dogs were found neglected and living outside in freezing conditions at a residence in Graham this week, according to a Humane Society article.
Animal control was called in to remove the animals, but upon arrival they found two dogs dead.
When the remaining six dogs were brought to the Humane Society for treatment, another dog died of the “horrible form” he was in, officials said.
The vet team said the remaining five dogs were skin and bones, dehydrated and covered in a carpet of dried fecal matter and infested with fleas, leaving them on a long road to recovery.
As these dogs were recovered, 14 other dogs were also recovered Tuesday in appalling conditions from a home in Tacoma.
These dogs were left alone in the snow, ice and freezing temperatures, according to the Humane Society.
The Humane Society said as more pets are brought in for care, they have more than 40 dogs ready for adoption and would like to make room as they are currently running low.
AT help dogs find a home, the shelter is offering a $ 50 reduction in adoption fees for all dogs from December 30 to January 16.
Here are other ways to help the shelter:
- to favor – Home owners provide a loving home, and the shelter provides the rest, including food, medical care, and other supplies. The foster family makes room for incoming pets – the more foster owners, the more animals can be rescued.
- Make a donation – Can’t you adopt or host? The refuge needs donations to help provide ongoing medical care to these dogs and the hundreds of animals he cares for.
The Humane Society said help was urgently needed to take care of the dogs.
