Just days after taking in 140+ cats from a hoarding situation in Doylestown, the Bucks County SPCA cruelty investigation team today removed 22 small dogs from the home of a Bucks County breeder. The animals were being kept in filthy conditions. The dogs have been transported to our shelter in Quakertown and are now safe in our care. The next steps are examination of each animal by our veterinary team and following up with cruelty charges against the dog breeder. The breeder has surrendered the dogs to the Bucks County SPCA which means that we will be able to place them for adoption after they are evaluated, healthy, and neutered.
Our two shelters are now running at maximum capacity behind the scenes. Staff and volunteers are working long hours to provide excellent care for all of the animals from both cases. The community can help these animals recover by making a financial donation to the BCSPCA Animal Relief Fund. We will provide updates on social media as the court cases proceed and these animals become available for adoption. As always, watch our online listing on our website to view pets currently available for adoption. We appreciate the strong support of our community in response to large cases like these.
