In a heartbreaking follow-up to the devastating story of pit bulls rescued from a horrifying situation in Riverside County, CA,  this past July, though some of the dogs, like Henry (pictured above) have been taken in rescue groups, those not so fortunate have had their time run out.

While pleas went out for the assistance of rescue groups to aid in removing them from the San Jacinto Animal Shelter went out in August, as of Saturday, September 17, the remaining animals have begun to be euthanized.

This is a sad ending to the frighteningly real nightmare these poor animals  had to endure at the hands of their human captors.  For those that survived their ordeal, but left so emotionally, physically, and mentally damaged from the atrocious conditions they were extracted, making it challenging to plance into foster care, we can only hope their passing is peaceful, grateful they won’t be hurting any longer.

Thank you to all the organizations, like Dream Team Angels Rescue and Wags and Walks, that stepped up to do whatever they could either through taking animals for fostering or getting the word out to others seeking assistance and support for these dogs.  Your efforts are appreciated by all the affected animals and those who took up the mantel to show they cared.
