Stamford Animal Control is currently dealing with a large influx of animals following a couple of instances netting several animals at once.
4 Bichon dogs recovered from the home of Susan Beran, who apparently , are still in need of a home. The dogs were recovered from the residence authorities believe a few days after the incident had occurred.
Outreach to Pets in Need is currently taking care of the medical costs for the dogs.
- Jenny, 11, had to have emergency surgery for bladder stones. She is a spayed female.
- Skipper, almost 10, is a neutered male.
- Kiwi, 13, is a neutered male
- Cassidy, almost 8, is also a neutered male.
Once the dogs medical needs have been met, they will be put up for adoption.
A second incident from the previous week netted 10 cats from one home where the animals were not being cared for.
"Some days it's all I can do to get one animal a home, and two more come in," said Director of the Stamford Animal Care & Control Shelter Laurie Hollywood.
The animals need homes so the shelter can continue to take in other strays who need help. Those interested should contact Stamford Animal Control at 203-977-4437.
A 2-year-old Staffordshire Terrier was recovered from a home apparently being foreclosed upon last week.
Stamford Animal Control responding to reports of a dog continuously barking at a residence found an empty home.
The dog was found in the backyard at about 2:30 a.m. with no lights on, "scared to death." The dog was dragging around a length of rope tied around its neck and was severely malnourished.
