132 Dogs, 3 Cats Rescued from Negligent Animal Shelter in California
More than 100 animals were rescued by the Central California Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (CCSPCA) after being alerted of their harsh conditions in a no-kill animal shelter in Orange Cove.
After receiving a tip, officials from the CCSPCA paid a visit to Noah's Friends Animal Sanctuary. During their visit, they discovered that animals living in the shelter were severely neglected. Many of them are extremely malnourished and infested with parasite. Furthermore, many are living in small crates with no food or water.
According to the report from The Fresno Bee, a total of 132 dogs and three cats were seized on the site. All the rescued animals are being checked by veterinary staffs of CCSCPA. Additional medical treatment will be conducted to the animals that are in dire need.
CCSPCA are also planning to file a case to the Fresno County District Attorney's office against the Noah's Friends Animal Sanctuary.
Due to the large number animals coming in at once, CCSPCA is asking for financial assistance to give the rescued dogs and cats with outmost medical treatment and care. Some of the rescued animals may require weeks of treatment and would most likely to recover faster in a foster home environment.
Donations could be made through their website or through mail at 103 S. Hughes Ave., Fresno, California 93706. People who want to volunteers or wants to be foster parents could inquire at their office or visit their website.
CCSCPA is the leading non-profit, animal welfare organization in California's Central Valley. Founded in 1946, CCSPCA is contracted by the City of Fresno to perform the Animal Control and Leash Law services.
Additional services they offer include Adoptions, Rescue, Foster Care, Owner Surrenders, Outreach, Humane Education, Veterinary Services, Spay/Neuter programs, and Pet Services. Furthermore, CCSPCA offers free ambulance service and shelter to lost or stray animals within the City of Fresno.
