On March 28th the GCIA Pet Task accompanied the Garfield County Sheriff's Departmart to Kremlin, OK to execute a search warrant in a severe animal neglect case. Fourteen extremely neglected dogs ranging in age from 3 months to the very elderly were discovered in deplorable conditions. This is the worst case of animal neglect and utter cruelty that we have been involved with. Old feces littered the grounds, there was no food and no water on property. The dogs are literally skin and bones, suffering from extreme malnutrition and dehydration. Two of dogs were too weak to stand and a couple of their eyes were completely matted shut and were unable to see at all. Several of the dogs were sick and all dogs were examined by a vet. One dogs remains in ICU and one suffered a probable stroke and had to be euthanized. An elderly lab was found chained and padlocked with callouses all over her bony areas from lying on the hard ground. Despite their deplorable conditions, all of the dogs, although scared and shy, were complete sweethearts and grateful to be rescued. Charges are pending in this case. Once the court permission is given and dogs are healthy enough to withstand surgery, all will be spayed, neutered and be available for adoption. In the mean time, careful nutritional support and meds are being given. The GCIA Pet Task Force is ran totally by volunteers and is a non-profit. Donations made are tax deductible. We are seeking funds to care for these poor souls. Any monies raised above their care will be used to add additional spaces for future rescues.
