On Friday, July 26, 2002, 86 dogs were seized from a collector's home in Burbank. The dogs were crated in the house which according to animal control, was at least 100 degrees. The animals have been in the custody of the shelter and became available for adoption this past
Saturday. Normally, the Burbank Shelter will hold onto animals as long as they have space but with this amount of extra dogs, they are going to have to start euthanizing. A lot of these dogs are really wonderful and deserve a second chance. MOST OF THE DOGS ARE LARGE "MIXED" BREEDS (Shepherds, Pit Bulls, Chows, Labs), but many with great dispositions. The shelter is waiving the normal $45 adoption fee and is only asking for $15 to adopt a dog which includes the spay/neuter. Please pass the word to anyone you know about these poor animals. They have had a rough time for the majority of their lives and deserve a shot at a real home.
IF YOU CAN HELP, PLEASE CALL THE BURBANK SHELTER DIRECTLY. If not, please forward this to anyone you think might be able to help.
