Several dogs rescued from truck soon up for adoption
NORTH MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (WSVN) -- More than two dozen dogs are receiving a helping hand after they were rescued from deplorable conditions.
On Tuesday morning, 81 dogs were rescued from poor conditions after Animal Services said the dogs were found inside of a truck parked at 12375 S.W. 248th St.
The dogs were under the care of a mother and daughter at the home. Charges remain pending.
The Humane Society of Greater Miami, located at 16101 West Dixie Highway in North Miami Beach, is taking care of 26 of the 81 dogs removed from the home. "They were filthy and some were covered in feces and urine, and some have upper respiratory, but in general the health is somewhat OK," said Humane Society of Greater Miami spokesperson Laurie Hoffman.
It will take seven to eight days for the dogs to get vaccinated, spade and neutered so they can be put up for adoption.
"Super confident. This one is so tired, he's had a long day, but they are all going to have a good home. They are all very well behaved, and this is their second chance in life," said Hoffman.
