High Desert Wolves Rescue is a non-profit animal “sanctuary” in Northern California. However the owner of the organization was brought to trial for “puppy mill” charges earlier this year. According to lassennews.com, the dogs were kept in cages their entire lives and were not socialized. Furthermore, many of the dogs and puppies had parvo virus and distemper.
A seemingly small breath of relief came when hearing that the dogs and pups were taken by authorities however that relief is short-lived. With the local government refusing to release the animals to any rescue groups for adoption, many of the dogs face euthanasia.
Change.org has published a petition for folks to sign, which would encourage the municipality to release the dogs into the care of rescue groups and prevent euthanasia. Click here to sign the petition.
There is also a gofundme account accepting donations to help with the cost of care and transportation of the animals for rescue attempts. To donate, click here.
