Nearly 100 Animals in Need of Homes Due to Recent Hoarding

(VVNG.com)- Nearly 100 animals surrendered to San Bernardino County Animal Care and Control by their owner will be available for adoption to the public and rescues on Tuesday, September 2.

The animals were surrendered to animal care and control from an owner in the Lucerne Valley area following an investigation into an unrelated case. (click link to read the article: http://www.vvng.com/six-children-and-over-60-animals-removed-from-residence/ )

The case is unique in the variety of animals surrendered. In addition to 29 various breed dogs, including puppies, there are two cats, 47 rabbits, four hamsters, three turtle, two chicken and two parakeets. The intake of the large number of animals has impacted the animal shelter and there is a need for adopters to come in and adopt the animals. The animals are well socialized and appear to have been well cared for and the majority will be available for adoption to the public.

We have a number of animals, not just dogs and cats, who are in need of adoption,” said Brian Cronin, Chief for Animal Care and Control. “These animals will be ready to go to loving homes on Tuesday, September 2 and we ask that the community and our rescue partners come forward to help each of these animals find a furever home.”

The Devore Animal Shelter is at 19777 Shelter Way in San Bernardino, CA. Donations can be made to the Animals are First Fund (ARFF) at: http://www.arffund.org/ Call (909) 386-9820 or visit Homeward Bound Project Adopt Facebook Page for more information.
