Confiscated dogs find new homes

July 27, 2007

Albany - Thursday, we told you the sad story of 42 dogs confiscated in Lee County after living in filthy conditions. After you saw their cute faces, Lee County Animal Control was flooded with calls for adoption.

Nine of the 11 dogs that were being kept here have already been adopted! Sadly, 15 other dogs had to be euthanized because their health was so poor.

"Before the people even unlocked the door to the office," said Animal Control officer Jackie Grigg, "the phones were ringing not only to animal control but to public works and by noon every animal that I picked up was adopted out."

All animals with the exception of two.  A little chihuahua had three puppies Thursday night. She'll need to wait at least 10 weeks to get them healthy. Then she and the puppies can be adopted. A male Chihuahua is also available, but has some skin problems so it will be a few weeks before he's ready to find a home.
