Dogs saved from starv­ing

Costa Blanca News (South Edition) - - News -

TWO ex­tremely ema­ci­ated dogs have been res­cued and the de­com­pos­ing re­mains of two oth­ers were found by Elche lo­cal po­lice in a ru­ral home in the district of Daimés.

Neigh­bours had re­ported that the an­i­mals may have been aban­doned and of­fi­cers ar­rived on Mon­day morn­ing to find a Ger­man shep­herd and a Labrador that were clearly starv­ing.

The dogs were taken to the mu­nic­i­pal vet and the own­ers of the prop­erty were con­tacted and gave per­mis­sion for a search when they ar­rived.

The de­com­pos­ing re­mains of two small dogs were found in an area that was full of ex­cre­ment. The own­ers claimed they had asked an­i­mal char­i­ties to take the dogs but did not pro­ceed be­cause they could not af­ford the cost.

The sur­viv­ing dogs have been given to the an­i­mal pro­tec­tion as­so­ci­a­tion in Bac­arot and the ev­i­dence from the scene has been passed to a court to con­sider a pos­si­ble charge of an­i­mal abuse and aban­don­ment.
