Once again, our friend Calpurnia has her paw on the pulse of canine news. . .

These pretty pups aren’t Tripawds, but we wanted to help spread the word about them. Last week they were saved from a terrible dog hoarding situation in rural Park County, Colorado.

Calpurnia and her Mom are working hard to help find donations and homes for these dogs. Here’s what they had to say:

“We are dealing with a horrific case of a musher ‘hoarding’ dogs, resulting in 100 dogs (6 mos to 14 yrs) that are now in desperate need of homes. Here is a local news story about the discovery.

Luckily, another musher who lives in the area discovered the situation before it got any worse and contacted the authorities. Amazingly, the dogs seem friendly and well socialized.

All the dogs are “somewhere” safe for now.

I asked what the critical need is right now, and it is money.

Park County is not a big county, and very low on funds. It is costing them to bond these dogs, plus medical care for the critical ones, plus checkups, shots, spay/neuters for the rest.

If people want to donate, they can send it to the Park County Animal Control, flagged for the Sled Dog Rescue efforts.

They can also donate to one of the shelters (listed below in order of need):

If someone wants to adopt a dog (someone with an active lifestyle, with a 6′ or greater fence and lots of patience and time to help these dogs adjust to being pets), they can contact the shelters directly.

The more doggy people I can get brainstorming on this, the better we can get these dogs homed and the love and care they each deserve.”

I just posted this on Gretchen & Chuy's bulletin board on myspace.  Between the two of them over 400 people will see this.

Chuy, showing everyone that Tripawds do everything 3 times better than regular dogs!

We just got an update from Calpurnia's Mom, TC, about the puppies:

“In case you were wondering, the people who were responsible for the starving sled dogs were charged with felony cruelty to animals.”
 
 
“The four we have seem to be doing really well.  They are very sweet dogs and despite all that they have been through, continue to live in the now and only look forward.  They have forgiven the human species for what was done to them and are eager for the next adventure.”
 
Also, check out this story about one of the dogs who was found at the compound. TC says:
“Here is another link to a happy ending for an older dog that ended up in a shelter.  His past mom recognized him and went to get him.”
Donations are still welcome for the rest of the dogs, to help them get ready for their furever homes. Please contact:
