A group of dogs rescued from a filthy Northern California home are in need of help.
Animal control officers rescued 16 golden retrievers from a feces and mold covered Cloverdale house last week.
Officers found rotting food, mud and garbage strewn throughout the house and yard, the Press Democrat reported. Several of the dogs were lethargic or unresponsive. Three of the dogs are pregnant.
The homeowner was arrested and could face several serious charges including animal cruelty. She was arrested two years ago for suspicion of running an unlicensed kennel.
The city can’t afford the cost to care for the animals so it’s asking the public for help. Their medical bills could top $15,000.
Local businesses and residents have stepped in to help. The family-owned King’s Kastle dog care facility has volunteered to take care of the dogs but they need donations and assistance finding good homes for the dogs.
The kennel has set up a special page with pictures of the goldens and details on how and where to make donations.
