It’s like nothing we’ve ever seen before. Nearly 40 purebred dogs were abandoned in an orchard in rural Merced County.
Predominately female and young (6 months to 3 years), the dogs included Poodles, Doodles, Afghans, Schnoodles, and Cocker Spaniels. None of the animals are microchipped. They appear well-fed but are filthy and matted.
We are at a loss as to how these dogs ended up in that orchard.
After some creative corralling, KFR has the dogs in foster. We’re keeping an eye out for any stragglers still hiding in the orchard.
On To Clean-Up and Check-ups
The next step is to groom the dogs and get them into our vet for medical evaluations. With dozens of pups, this is going to be a huge job.
If you are a dog groomer, especially a mobile groomer, we could really use your help bathing and removing mattes. Please contact us if you are available.
Support the Rehoming Effort
Getting dozens of dogs ready for adoption and fostering them until they are adopted is going to be costly. If you can help in any way, it would be greatly appreciated. You can make cash donations (Paypal or Venmo) or purchase items from our Amazon Wishlist.
