The Ontario County Humane Society is asking for financial donations to care for 85 dogs seized last week from a home in Naples. The humane society, which is treating the dogs at its animal shelter in Hopewell, calls this one of the worst animal cruelty cases seen in the county.
“The dogs are slowly healing, but the need is still great and it’s going to be a long road to recovery,” according to a release Tuesday.
Calling the seized dogs the “Naples 85,” the humane society said they are all Cairn and Yorkshire terriers ranging from 4 months to 6 years old.
“The task of caring for so many dogs at once has put a resource strain on the Ontario County Humane Society and immediate funds are needed to treat the dogs. The organization has a goal of $125,000 to properly care for the animals over the next 90 days. The dogs are being treated for fleas, allergies, parasites, and are being spayed, neutered, and vaccinated,” stated the release.
Overwhelming support for dogs rescued from Naples home
The Ontario County Humane Society have their hands full. They are caring for 80 dogs that were removed from a Naples home last Wednesday.
Richard Justice and Jane Justice were charged with animal cruelty. They didn’t give the dogs enough food or water.
Sweetiepie was one of the many dogs rescued from the home. “They are being treated for internal parasites and some eye issues from the matting and the fleas,” said Dianne Faas, manager at the Ontario County Humane Society. “They are also having a couple of ear problems.”
The good news is that they are getting better each day.
