On June 30 we assisted the Sheboygan County Sheriff’s Office in a seizure of 37 dogs from a single property. A press conference was held 7/7/17 to provide updates and answer any questions from media.
Thank you for the offers to help and for the amazing support, which makes this lifesaving work possible. Please know that the dogs are still considered “seized” and are not yet the “property” of SCHS; thus, they are not available for adoption and not able to be viewed by the public. We DO NOT have a waiting list; please continue to follow our Facebook page for updates. As we’ve been just flooded with inquiries, we appreciate your patience, too!
The majority of the dogs are being housed here at SCHS. Our friends at the Wisconsin Humane Society also received a dozen of the dogs this week. The dogs have settled in and are slowly adjusting to their new environment. They have obviously been deprived of the love and affection that all dogs deserve, but we’re confident that they’ll blossom with kindness and patience. Overall, we would characterize their dispositions as shy, sweet, somewhat fearful, yet curious.
The public response to a call for donations over the weekend truly floored us. Every dog will certainly be getting new toys and treats, and we couldn’t be more grateful for the help. We could still use paper toweling, bones, toys and monetary donations will help offset housing, staffing and medical expenses. To make a monetary donation, simply click the donate button.
Although these dogs are not yet available for adoption, please consider opening your heart to another dog at SCHS. Because we are caring for so many seized dogs, we are quite full and we’d love it if the public would consider adopting the other dogs who are available and who desperately want to find a loving home, too!
