Dozens of dogs have been saved from a sad hoarding situation in Danville, California. The Contra Costa Animal Services facility said that there were an estimated 70-75 dogs on the property, and 25 cats. The agency wrote:
Our team worked with representatives from ARF, East Bay SPCA and Berkeley Humane to safely remove the majority of the animals from the property to be medically evaluated and sheltered. Collectively, ARF, EBSPCA and BHS took approximately 42 animals into their shelters. 32 of the dogs and five of the cats were brought to CCAS.
Unfortunately, not all of the rescued dogs could be saved. According to the animal welfare agency, six dogs were in such poor condition that they had to be humanely euthanized. The remaining cats and dogs are receiving care and recuperating at the shelter.
There is no information provided about possible charges, or who owned the animals.
