Following a Court hearing this morning, the County Department of Animal Services announces it is accepting adoption applications for many of the 63 dogs taken from a property on Moreno Avenue in Lakeside on March 10. The dogs were seized after Animal Control Officers responded to a complaint of neglect.
The Department agreed to release the owner’s three personal dogs back to her. Until several unspecified dogs can be identified as possibly belonging to other persons, the actual adoptions cannot take place. But applications can be accepted. Once identity is confirmed, the approximately 50 remaining dogs, mostly boxers, will be available for adoption by the public.
The Department will also be working with its approved rescue partners in placing the dogs. Starting on Wednesday July 7, the Department will have a special adoption application available on its website, www.sddac.com, for anyone interested in adopting one of the dogs.
All dogs will be neutered or spayed, microchipped and vaccinated prior to going home with their new family. For more information on adoptions at any of the three County animal shelters, or to view photos of available animals, please visit the department's Adoptions page.
