Humane Educational Society Animal Protection Service Officers spent most of the night Thursday, rescui Humane Educational Society ng 26 small breed dogs that had been living in a van with their owner. The poor dogs were in need of care and were surrendered to HES. All of the dogs are very friendly and loving. Each will make a wonderful companion, said HES officials.
All 26 dogs have been spayed and neutered some required a more difficult neuter because they were cryptorchid. Each dog has been vaccinated, groomed and microchipped.
Seven of the new shelter residents had cherry eye. Some in both eyes. Cherry eye is a protrusion on the third eyelid; this sensitive tissue dries out and is subjected to external trauma. If left untreated, this condition can lead to dry eye syndrome and other complications. All seven have received surgery to end the discomfort of this condition.
Three more of our new furry friends had severe dental issues. Each of these dogs had a dental cleaning and rotten teeth removed.
One of the dogs is deaf and others have a hereditary skin issue that will not allow them to grow hair. However, this should not distract from them being lovable and kind.
Executive Director Phil Snyder states, “Each of these precious animals is deserving and worthy of a loving forever home. Please make an appointment to adopt your new best friend today.”
Almost all of the dogs are available for adoption now and a few need a foster home to recover from surgery in. HES adoptions are by appointment only at this time. Appointments can be made by calling the shelter at 624-5302.
