It’s a story that is straight from horror books. Imagine being trapped inside a house with no food and water, along with 14 other creatures. This was the plight of 15 dogs in Canada. And because they were all locked in with no way out, all their bodily waste were scattered all over.
Their miraculous rescue happened because two patrol officers went to the West End of Winnipeg in Manitoba, to do a follow-up on an unrelated case. After they were done with their mission, they passed one of the houses along the street. The officers noticed a very strong odor coming from inside the house, prompting them to investigate. They looked inside and were shocked by what they discovered.
The nose’s of the two cops were quickly attacked by the foul smell of unwashed dogs and their increments. And inside, dogs were crying and howling, desperate for food and freedom. They couldn’t see clearly how many were inside, but they sensed that it was a lot.
The cops quickly got in touch with the Winnipeg Animal Services and told them the situation. The dogs were clearly in distress and needed immediate help. When they arrived, the rescue team forcibly opened the door. They went inside and collected all the dogs.
In total, they were able to get 15 dogs, composed of five adults and ten puppies. They thoroughly inspected the house and noticed that because of the lack of food, the dogs were already starting to eat the furniture and the walls. They estimated that the dogs could have been abandoned for a week up to a month.
The first stop was to bring the dogs to a vet. Aside from malnutrition, some of the dogs had minor health issues like an eye ulcer, ear infection, and some parasite infestation. Thankfully, they were found before any significant issues could develop.
Luckily, within one month of being in the care of animal services, all 15 dogs were adopted. They are now in their new homes were hopefully, they will never be abandoned again. As for the dog’s previous owner, she was found, arrested, and charged with animal cruelty.
