Update: Due to the severe conditions, six of the eight dogs had to be put down.
“Their suffering and level of pain was so significant and irreparable that the veterinarian, after a full examination on the dogs, recommended euthanasia as a kindness to relief that pain and suffering because that was the only kindness that we could offer them,” said Vicki Mosgrove Executive Director Finger Lakes SPCA.
Mosgrove says that this was one of the worst resuces that she has seen in her career.
“For seasoned rescuers we were really… it was one of the worst conditions,” said Mosgrove. “One of the worst situations that we’ve seen for condition of animals at the time of rescue, so I would say that was the thing that stood out for all of us.”
Mosgrove says that the other animals are healing nicely and they are asking the public for supplies and donations. You can find how to support their effort here.
