MEDIA, Pa. (CBS) - The Pennsylvania SPCA is putting out the word that some of the more than two dozen dogs that were rescued last Friday in Delaware County are now up for adoption.
Twenty eight Shepherds and Shepherd mixes were taken from the Sixth Angel Shepherd Rescue in Marcus Hook after SPCA officers found the dogs living in a house filled with animal waste. They were brought back to the SPCA for evaluation and treatment and spokeswoman Wendy Marano says some of them are now looking for new homes.
“When you have a big large-scale operation like this one, it stresses all of the resources on the shelter and space so we really encourage people to come on down and meet their new best friend.”
To encourage adoptions, she says most of their adult dogs are now available for 50 percent of their current adoption fee.
Meanwhile, the operator of the Rescue Terry Silva is facing multiple counts of animal cruelty. She was charged with similar violations three years ago in conjunction with her rescue operations.
