» August 5, 2011

Los Angeles, CA—Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles (spcaLA) Humane Officers rescued seven dogs from a pet shop on Tuesday, July 26th and now 3 of the 7 are available for adoption.

Two Yorkshire Terrier mixes, sisters Rosie (11-04806) and Lucy (11-04805) and a male Cockapoo, Rocky (11-04807), are available at the South Bay Pet Adoption Center in Hawthorne. They have been checked out by spcaLA Veterinary Staff and are ready to meet their new families.

The other four dogs, all Chihuahuas, are still receiving veterinary care but are expected to make a full recovery, including Milagras, who was in severe distress when found by spcaLA Humane Officers. She was rushed to an animal hospital, received immediate medical attention and luckily survived.  Donations for the 7 rescued puppies’ medical care can be made at www.spcaLA.com or by phone at 310-730-5300, ext 253.

Humane Officers responded to an anonymous tip from the spcaLA Animal Cruelty Tip Line. To report animal cruelty, call the spcaLA Animal Cruelty Tip Line at 1-800-540-SPCA (7722) or report online at www.spcaLA.com.
