Dogs abandoned, suffering from castration bands, looking for a new home
WEST RICHLAND, Wash. — Three dogs were found abandoned in Franklin County on Aug. 30. They are now recovering and looking for a new home.
Pet Over Population Prevention (POPP) in West Richland said Drake and Rebel “both suffered at the hands of someone who couldn’t be bothered to utilize the low-cost spay/neuter resources locally.”
The two male dogs had castration bands on them, typically used for livestock. They were in pain and left to suffer near Mesa Lake.
No one has come forward to claim the pets.
POPP’s primary purpose is to promote responsible pet care through educating the public on the importance of spaying and neutering their cats and dogs.
They are urging pet owners to take advantage of their low cost clinics on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1. You can also apply for the POPP assistance program if you need financial help spaying or neutering your pets.
The German Shorthair Pointer Dixie and Rebel should be adopted together. Drake is also available for adoption. All three dogs are believed to be about 10 months old.
