BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA – Eight small dogs, which appear to be lhasa apsos, were abandoned in a single crate in front of the Brevard County Sheriff’s Department Animal Services building overnight on Monday.
The dogs were in horrible condition, most of them matted and covered in feces, and then BSCO reached out to the SPCA of Brevard and asked for assistance.
Around 1 p.m. on New Year’s Eve, the eight dogs arrived at the SPCA of Brevard’s adoption center in Titusville.
“Right now, we’re doing vet checks on the dogs, including updating vaccines and heartworm testing, as well as trying to start taking care of some of their matted fur,” said Susan Naylor, public relations director for the SPCA.
“These poor dogs have been deeply neglected, but are still incredibly sweet for what they’ve been through.”
Staff will work with the dogs through the holiday to try to get them ready for foster care placement on Thursday.
At this point, little is known about the dogs, other than their poor condition and apparently sweet dispositions.
The ideal foster homes will be quiet and allow their foster dog time to acclimate to living inside a normal home.
Anyone interested in fostering may contact the SPCA’s foster department on Thursday at 321-567-3615 ext. 242 or join the SPCA of Brevard Foster Connection Facebook Group.
