After observing a large number of dogs who were living in
filthy conditions, chained, breeding, fighting, or confined to hot areas—and getting no help from local animal
control—a caring person notified PETA, and one of its caseworkers jumped into
action.

The miserable pups were covered with fleas and living
without veterinary care or socialization. Two of the dogs were kept inside a
trailer that had no air conditioning or any other kind of ventilation. One was
significantly underweight. Those responsible for the sad conditions of the dogs
clearly didn’t care about their welfare, so the caseworker persuaded them to
surrender the animals and arranged for an area resident to pick up the 13 dogs
and carry them to a reputable local animal shelter—from which one has already
been adopted into a loving home.

What You Can Do

PETA will continue to monitor the situation to make sure the
dogs’ former owners don’t
acquire more animals, but this case again illustrates the importance of speaking up when you see animals
in trouble
and being persistent until they get the help they so desperately need.
