DCHS partners with other shelters to rescue 49 dogs from former breeder
MADISON, Wis. — The Dane County Humane Society joined other humane societies across the state to take in 49 dogs that were surrendered from a former breeder and were in need of shelter, according to a release.
On Feb. 10, authorities negotiated the surrender of 49 dogs from a former breeder, officials said.
DCHS, Fox Valley Humane Association, Clark County Humane Society, Oshkosh Humane Society, HAWS of Waukesha and Willow Run Kennels in Appleton responded and took the 49 dogs to their shelters within 24 hours, according to the release.
DCHS took 11 retriever mix dogs on Feb. 11. The 11 dogs were examined by the DCHS Animal Medical Services team, officials said. All of the dogs require spay or neuter surgery, vaccinations, deworming, heartworm testing and dental work. Some require major dental work and have other medical issues to address.
Two of the retrievers have already been adopted, but the remaining nine dogs will become available for adoption once their medical concerns are addressed.
Anyone who wants to help support the care of the dogs can donate at giveshelter.org.
