BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Seven Australian Shepherd dogs that survived a house fire in Merritt Island on Wednesday morning are safe at the SPCA of Brevard.
The dogs arrived late Friday afternoon at the Adoption Center courtesy of Brevard County Sheriff’s Office Animal Services.
“The dogs all seem to be sweet and some are understandably scared,” said Susan Naylor, public relations coordinator for the SPCA.
“They’ve been through so much in just a couple days and their lives have been turned upside down.”
All the dogs seem to be fairly healthy, with the exception of some skin conditions and a couple being possibly blind and/or deaf.
The dogs will be examined by SPCA staff veterinarian, updated on any necessary vaccines, and spayed or neutered before being placed for adoption. It is expected to be about a week before they will be available.
The SPCA will update their progress and announce when they are accepting applications for the dogs on their Facebook page.
