Pierce County Animal Control Shelters 19 Neglected Dogs

Pierce County, Washington – 19 dogs are brought after the rescue to the Tacoma & Pierce County Humane Society. These dogs were neglected during the winter storm this past week.

On December 27, the Pierce County Animal Control brought 6 dogs from a property in Graham. The dogs were left outside in the freezing temperatures, and two were found dead on site.

One of the dogs from the Graham property was in such bad shape that vets at the Human Society had to humanely euthanize it when it arrived. The remaining 5 dogs were ‘skin and bones, dehydrated, covered in mats with dried fecal matter and infested with fleas.”

Next, the following day, around 14 dogs were brought into the shelter from a property in Tacoma. They were left alone in the freezing temperatures and snow.

The shelter’s vet staff evaluated their medical conditions and worked accordingly to help them.
