As if shelters aren’t crowded enough, on Saturday, Contra Costa Animal Services in Martinez, California, officers responded to hoarding activity in the Town of Danville identifying approximately 75 dogs and 25 cats on the property.
According to the shelter, representatives from ARF, East Bay SPCA and Berkeley Humane Society were able to safely remove most of the animals from the property and transport them from the property to be medically evaluated and sheltered. Collectively the rescue organizations were able to take in 42 of the animals.
Approximately 32 dogs and five cats have been brought to the Contra Costa Animal Services, however six of the dogs had to be humanely euthanized due to their poor medical condition. The other animals have been vetted and are currently in stable condition.
Animal Control officers will be back at the property to assess the condition of the remaining animals.
