Helping out neglected dogs

The Okanagan community is rallying around a group of neglected dogs seized from a property in Williams Lake. 

20 of the 46 dogs are in Kelowna, the rest are in Quesnel and Penticton shelters. 

All the dogs require considerable care because some are so fearful that they won't even tolerate people nearby.

Last week BC SPCA made a plea to the public for help.

It said the shelters need "high value" food like roasted beef or chicken, that helps shelter staff win over the shyest dogs, but they also need sheets or bedding, dog toys and cash.

Daryl Wilcox from Quick Grow and his two god-kids set out to help. 

The kids handed over a $1,100 cheque to the BC SPCA to help with the dogs.

"When we heard about the SPCA needed help with 40 dogs that were seized last week we knew that two things had to happen. First Quick Grow and Diablo had to buck up and help. The second thing was deploying our two ambassadors Jacob and Connor. Here they are with a giant cheque at the Kelowna SPCA," Wilcox posted on Facebook. 

A few of the dogs, which are a mix of American Eskimo, husky, border collie and samoyed-cross breeds, are slightly more socialized but improvement is expected to be slow.
