NAPLES - Collier County Domestic Animal Services impounded 43 dogs today surrendered by a local breeder because of a foreclosure proceeding on his property resulting in an eviction. The 20 adult dogs and 29 puppies, all golden retrievers and Labradors, appear to be in fair health condition and well socialized, and so should be excellent adoption candidates.
PICS: The dogs at Collier DAS
“I commend the dog owner for his decision to surrender these animals under difficult circumstances,” said DAS Director Amanda Townsend. “Our community partners have agreed to assist us in helping find permanent homes for the adoptable dogs.”
Humane Society Naples is accepting four mothers with litters and five puppies. The balance of the adult dogs (16 in all) will be housed at DAS’s Immokalee shelter facility, pending a full health assessment. Collier Spay Neuter Clinic has agreed to surgically sterilize all the healthy adults next week, and an adoption event is being planned for the following weekend.
