We received the transfer of 12 precious dogs who were all rescued by Animal Rescue Corps from living in deplorable conditions. They were all in need of additional medical care, which they received at Hinsdale Humane Society. Of the 12 dogs rescued in this operation, all but two have been adopted: Skedaddle, who delivered her puppies and is up for adoption, and Dover, who is still in foster care for socialization.
If you are able, please make a donation to our medical fund to help offset our costs for not only caring for these sweet souls, but so we can rescue more unfortunate dogs like them in the future.
