Last Thursday, September 16th, the Caruthersville Police Department received help from the ASPCA to save 20 animals that were living in extremely unsanitary and hazardous conditions in southeast Missouri.

The majority of the canines were discovered confined in a small bathroom measuring six-by-eight-feet with a temperature of 80 degrees. The bathroom was filthy and stinky due to the presence of feces and urine, and ammonia levels were alarmingly high.
A number of the canines were not in their optimal weight and a few were experiencing unattended health complications such as flea problems. Additionally, some dogs displayed signs of illness like eye infections, untreated foot fractures, and fractured teeth.
The ASPCA’s team of experts is currently lending their expertise to assist local authorities in gathering evidence for their ongoing investigation.
The canines were moved to a shelter designed for urgent situations administered by the ASPCA in a confidential place.
The ASPCA is taking good care of these dogs by providing them with the necessary medical attention and behavior training to help them recover and become ready for adoption.
