A strike team of animal services workers responded to a Danville property Friday after getting reports of dozens of animals being kept in unsafe, unsanitary conditions.
Contra Costa Animal Services workers along with representatives from ARF, East Bay SPCA and Berkeley Humane Society went to the unidentified property to gather and assess the condition of dozens of cats and dogs kept at the location.
Collectively, ARF, EBSPCA and BHS took approximately 42 animals into their shelters for medical evaluation. All told, workers identified approximately 70-75 dogs on the property and approximately 25 cats on Friday alone, returning Saturday to assess still more animals remaining on the property.
Thirty two dogs and five cats were brought to Contra Costa Animal Services. Six of the dogs had to be euthanized due to their medical condition. The remaining dogs and cats are currently receiving care and are in stable condition at the county shelter.
