The Virginia Beach SPCA took in 45 dogs rescued from a single location on the Eastern Shore in an operation earlier this month.
Of 45 dogs brought to the shelter Oct. 16, 33 remained there and 12 were transferred to Compassion for Canines, a rescue organization, according to a Facebook post on the Virginia Beach SPCA page.
“Many of you have asked how you can help and what is next for these dogs. If you would like to make a financial donation, it would be greatly appreciated. Our work never stops – we have another regional transfer of dogs coming in this week in addition to the many animals currently residing at our shelter. We are also in need of the following items: sheets, towels, Dawn dish soap, and bleach,” the SPCA post went on to say.
The animals, which appear to be small, terrier-type canines, were surrendered from an apparent hoarding situation on the Eastern Shore.
Rescuers did not give the precise location.
According to the SPCA, there were more than 100 dogs living inside the home.
Some will need additional medical treatment and care, according to the SPCA.
Others will soon be available for adoption.
Several rescue organizations from Hampton Roads and the Eastern Shore were involved and 90 dogs and three kittens were reportedly surrendered.
