Last week, the Dumb Friends League received 21 neglected dogs removed from a home in Penrose, Colo. Most of the dogs, which included several puppies (some as young as 5 weeks old), are Australian cattle dog mixes. Many did not have access to any food or water at the residence. A veterinarian at the scene treated several of the animals with fluids and for minor injuries before they were removed from the property.
They have all received medical care and proper nutrition to get them on the road to recovery. A couple of the dogs were placed up for adoption yesterday, and the rest will become available as their behavioral and medical needs are addressed.
