    Default anyone in the Pennsylvania area, cavalier raid

    http://www.nbc10.com/news/6914376/detail.html

    Perhaps people may be interested in one of these dogs or in helping to foster as it sounds like there were many that came in. Be aware that these are puppy farm/mill dogs and will need extra time and TLC; they are likely very undersocialised, probably traumatised and anxious. Very rewarding to work with dogs from such a situation but just be aware they would not be like getting a well adjusted puppy or adult from a good breeder, and need extra patience and kindness.

    Mr. Wolf hasn't signed them over yet... until he does make a decision-- the dogs can't be dispersed. I was told--Some of these dogs are as young as 2 weeks. Sandy

    Thanks for the update. Hopefully the litters can be kept together til the puppies are viable for rehoming.

    My heart just breaks for those poor little pups. Wish I could give all the dogs a home.

    Just to be sure we have the word out, I have also contacted Mary with Lucky Star in the Northeast. Hopefully, since they are in the area, someone can get the ball rolling. There is a huge blizzard raging in that part of the world today so I imagine it will slow things down a bit. If anyone hears of any progress, please let us know.

    My understanding from the cavalier breeder list is that cav rescues have all been alerted about these cavaliers. The current standing is that they have been dispersed among area SPCAs and shelters until either the owner releases them for homing, or a case comes to court -- if he won't release them they will likely have to be held as evidence pending the results of a trial.

    The shelter that took them in badly needs donations. I can testify to how crippling a raid like this can be for an SPCA -- it can cost thousands to board and give proper medical care for dogs seized in a raid. I understand some of the dogs are in very poor condition. Here is info on sending a contribution or making a donation of bedding etc if you live in the region.

    For right now, the shelter is very much needing
    >> donations to be sent directly to them so that they can help with the
    >> care of the dogs. For anyone who is near enough, they also request
    >> that shampoo, bedding, towels, and so on be donated. The address to
    >> send donations is Chester County SPCA, 1212 Phoenixville Pike in West
    >> Chester, PA 19380.

    Not 135 dogs but more like 300. . . :cry:

    Donations are really going to be needed now. The financial and material strain this is going to create for the local PA shelters and rescue groups will be huge. I would think that their volunteers will have their hands full just trying to care for these poor animals. I have sent a plea for donations out to all my doggie loving friends via e-mail, it never hurts to ask. Maybe we could all do a little asking of those outside of our little "family" of Cav lovers. A little from a lot of people adds up quickly.

    Good idea Jane about the fund raising. Possibly those of us in the U.S. could figure out how to pool our resources for assistance to PA. or should we just send any assistance directly to the PA shelter?

    You can send directly to the shelter as noted above -- that came from someone who had spoken directly to the shelter. icon_thumbsup
