Local groomers with Vanity Fur and Doggy Do’s Grooming volunteered to help get the pups feeling better in their fur.

When they were rescued, many of the dogs had matter fur that was covered in feces and urine.

Most of them were confined to crates or cages too small, and in some cases, many dogs were in each crate.

The dogs are not currently up for adoption and will continue being held as the legal case plays out.  The humane society will notify the public as things progress.

If you would like to help, the shelter is accepting supplies such as food, treats, hard plastic/rubber toys, towels, bedding and more.  The humane society has a wish list on Amazon where donors can purchase products and have them shipped directly to the shelter.

It costs over $500 a day to care for all of the dogs, the humane society said.

Monetary donations can also be made online.

Adoptable pets can be found on the humane society’s website.
