(DES MOINES) The Cedar Valley Humane Society in Cedar Rapids is one of several shelters in the state that’s helping care for 88 dogs that were confiscated from a commercial breeding facility in western Iowa last month. Director Bob Citrullo says the Sac County woman has relinquished ownership, so they’re getting 15 cocker spaniels ready for adoption.
“Basically what we’ve done up to date; we’ve treated them all for parasites, we’ve totally cleaned up their fur, and we’re in the process; now that we’ve been given custody, we’re getting their teeth cleaned, we’re getting tumors removed, they’re all going up for their spay or neuter surgery,” said Citrullo.
Citrullo says there’s been a lot of interest in the dogs, so he’s trying to come up with a fair way to adopt them out. More information should be available next week.
