PetSmart Charities Issues Urgent Request

Since 52 dogs were found in a Dorchester County, SC home, PetSmart Charities has issued an urgent request for donations as the animals await adoption in a shelter.

"The smell was overpowering," reported a press release from PetSmart. "In this midst of this filth, crammed into a singlewide trailer lived 52 dogs...another 11 badly mistreated dogs were living in a small pen outside."

Garbage was piled so high, animal rescue workers had trouble getting in the door of the home.

Immediately a call went out to the Frances R. Willis Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) and workers rearranged the animals already in their care. By the next morning the small shelter was prepared to handle the crisis.

With an emergency grant from PetSmart Charities ®, shelter staff was able to focus on preparing the animals for adoption.

The grant only covered the cost of rescuing the hoarded dogs which can easily add up to thousands and dollars and quickly tax a small shelter's budget, staff say. But by offering this financial assistance, the staff of Frances R. Willis was able to focus on saving as many lives as possible.

But the 11 Lab mixes and Spaniel mixes living outside were so disease-ridden they had to be put down.

"There was no shortage of compassion for the remaining dogs," the release stated.

In other animal news, carnivore populations are declining dramatically and citizens are asked to urge Congress to support the Great Cats and Rare Canids Act of 2020 by going to care2.com. This act would assist the conservation of rare cat and canine populations outside the U.S. The legislation covers 13 species of felids and canids, from the endangered Snow Leopard of Central Asia to the critically endangered Ethiopian Wolf.

"Unless we act soon, our children will inherit a world without these magnificent animals," said Rebecca Young of Care 2. "Conservation-minded members of Congress have just reintroduced legislation to help protect great cats and canids around the world."
