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.READ MORE: 2 People Killed, Several Trapped In Rubble In Pottstown House Explosion, Officials Say
