Thanks to Barking Enforcement, Thirty Dogs are Saved From a lIfe of Illness and Deprivation
Inland Valley Daily Bulletin - Ontario, California, USA
UPLAND - Thirty dogs that were seized from a home that was deemed uninhabitable are available for adoption starting today.
About 40 dogs, mostly cockapoos and poodles, were taken from a home in the 1000 block of Sycamore Court in late February after code enforcement served an inspection warrant at the residence. A neighbor had complained about the odor and barking coming from the home.
Some of the dogs were found suffering from eye infections and hair loss, a symptom of mange or fleas, police said. A dog rescue organization took the animals who were the most ill, police said.
One of the dogs had seven puppies while in the care of the Upland Animal Shelter.
Police received dozens of calls from people wanting to adopt the dogs and puppies. But the dog owner, Nancy Holm-Barrett, 61, filed paperwork to get her dogs back, Upland police Sgt. Alan Ansara said.
The woman's request was denied, so the dogs again became available for adoption, Ansara said.
