MEDIA, Pa. (CBS) – The Delaware County SPCA says it has rescued 10 dogs from “desperate” conditions at a Delaware shelter, and they’re asking for the public’s help with their immediate care.

The SPCA says the dogs were taken from a private shelter in Georgetown, Del. that was facing bankruptcy. They include beagles, a Maltese, a Staffordshire terrier, pit bull terrier, lab, boxer and American bulldog blends. They are all “sociable” but need immediate medical treatment for things like skin conditions, ear infections and heartworm.

In order to rescue more animals from the 130-dog facility in Delaware, the Delaware County SPCA needs to find adoptive families for the pups already in the shelter. They are also asking for donations.

On Friday, at 12:30, a local pastor will be providing a blessing of the animals at the Delco SPCA in honor of St. Francis of Assisi.
