Neglected dogs helped

Last week, 24 rescued dogs were relocated from Williams Lake to the BC SPCA in Penticton, scared, neglected and in need of help. When the SPCA put out a call for donations to help the pups, the South Okanagan community rose to the challenge. 

The SPCA asked for blankets and towels, cooked chicken to be used as a treat to get the traumatized dogs out of their shells and cleaning materials. By Saturday, they had overflowing closets and fridges full of the requested items.

"We would like to express our sincerest gratitude to our community for the outpouring of support we've received," the branch wrote in its Facebook page. "Penticton, you have gone above and beyond to help out the dogs we have in our care."

The post included an album of photos showing the plethora of donations.

The dogs are currently undergoing treatment for ailments as well as receiving behavioural therapy for psychological trauma while their previous owner awaits trial, but the BC SPCA is hopeful they will be put up for adoption at some point to find healthier homes.
