From Angels of Assisi: Angels of Assisi assisted Mercer County, WV animal control in the seizure of over 50 Maltese mix dogs from a single dwelling. Angels of Assisi took 28 of the dogs to be rehabilitated and placed up for adoption. These dogs have never been outside or seen sunlight. They have mats in their fur full of feces and urine. Angels of Assisi volunteers and staff have spent the last 2 days bathing grooming and providing medical care to all of the new arrivals.

“When seeing the conditions these dogs were living in and the situation they came from, we’re grateful to the community for helping Angels of Assisi be able to help in large scale rescues such as this one. We’re also appreciative to the Mercer County Animal Control for asking for assistance.” said Lisa O’Neill, executive director. These dogs are available for adoption.
