More than 30 dogs and puppies need new homes after they were found abandoned in a foreclosed Kansas City home.
Unleashed Pet Rescue and Adoption has taken possession of 18 newborn puppies, 14 older dogs and a pregnant dog found in a residence on Southwest Boulevard. The group said the canines had been abandoned for at least a week.
“What we found was a complete travesty for any form of life to be expected to survive in,” said the group in a press release. “Amazingly enough, we have not had any of the animals expire since they have been transported into our care.”
The group is overwhelmed, and is requesting donations of supplies, including dry and wet puppy food, high protein dog food, cleaning products, blankets and paper towels. Vet bills are expected to be massive, so monetary donations are also welcome.
The city does not plan to pursue legal action against the person responsible for abandoning the animals because they were designated as the bank’s property in relinquishment documents.
