Officers recently were called out to the same home after a call to 311 asked police to check on dogs believed to be living in bad conditions at the address. Officers found “extremely unsanitary conditions,” as stated in the article.
Following the investigation by animal protection officers working with Denver police, the two dozen French Bulldogs subsequently were brought to Denver Animal Shelter where they have been receiving medical care. “Many of the animals were in dire need of proper medical care, and shelter staff members have worked very hard to heal these animals inside and out,” according to the Denver Animal Shelter’s Facebook post.
Typically the shelter prefers to reunite pets with owners, the post stated, pointing to this case being a bit different. “It was determined by Denver Police Department and Denver Animal Protection staff that, in this case, it was absolutely in the best interest of the animals that they be removed from the residence, provided immediately with necessary medical care, and placed with those better able to care for them,” the post stated.
