Update 03/21/2009: Spankey has been put on a medical hold for observation and treatment. We are still accepting applications and interested people can schedule an appointment with us to meet him- but we will be holding onto him until further notice. Update 03/10/2009: We have been given custody of the dogs that came into protective custody. We can start placing them and releasing some information.We first want to thank the Valencia County Animal Control for calling on rescue for help on these dogs. These dogs were in horrible shape and the staff did everything they could to ensure they all lived and were given the best chance possible. They removed them from the horrible situation they were at and put them into foster homes to get them healthy and keep them safe while going to court with the owner.Spankey was severely dehydrated when AC picked him up-- we have to thank AC for getting him rehydrated and fed by the time we got there. It was heartbreaking to see the animals in that condition!! Spankey came in as a 4 week old pup- he has now been in custody with us since January 22, 2009. He is growing and getting healthier by the day.. Spankey is doing great. He is pretty much completely housetrained, however his adopter will have to continue monitoring him to ensure he does continue his progress. He loves to play and follows us everywhere we go throughout the house.. He is a complete doll!!!! Adoption fee $275 will include vaccines, rabies, neuter, 1 month supply of Pedigree, adoption kit, collar, microchip, and training DVD..He was severely emaciated and dehydrated upon intake. We would love any help possible in caring for this beautiful baby. We should be able to get custody within the next few weeks. He is a little doll-- we will be posting more information, pictures, and his name as soon as we get a release. Thank you. Please help care for this baby by clicking on the donate button.
