Brandywine Valley SPCA takes in over 40 dogs, plans to place most up for adoption
DOVER, Del. – On Friday, the Brandywine Valley SPCA took in 44 dogs from a Dover home, and says most of them will be up for adoption later this week.
Officials from the SPCA, in collaboration with the Delaware Office of Animal Welfare, took in the dogs after their elderly primary caregiver passed away last week. They say the dogs consist mostly of small breeds, including Chihuahuas, Pomeranians, and Yorkshire Terriers, and range in age from young adults to seniors.
30 of the dogs were taken to their Animal Rescue Center in Georgetown, while the remaining 14 were taken to their New Castle Campus.
Officials from the BVSPCA say the dogs have received full veterinary evaluations and are in good condition. The dogs will spayed/neutered over the next two days.
36 of the dogs will be placed up for adoption, while eight will be returned to relatives after they are spayed/neutered. They are hoping to have the first group of dogs available for option on Tuesday at the New Castle and Georgetown Campuses, then some on Wednesday at the West Chester Campus.
