The BISSELL Pet Foundation stepped up to help the rescue efforts of neglected dogs from sites in Safford, Arizona and near Montreal, Quebec. Contacts at Animal Rescue Corps (ARC) reached out to the Foundation in late May seeking assistance for back to back rescues that occurred within days of each other. The rescue group had taken on 35 large breed dogs, which were removed from unfit living situations in both locations, and were in need of funding to assist with their care and treatment. The Foundation responded by sending $5,000 to support their efforts and ensure the dogs would find forever homes after enduring a poor quality of life, being mistreated and living in unfit conditions.
The dogs rescued from Safford, Arizona were found suffering from unattended medical conditions and inadequate access to water and shade. ARC responded to a tip from a concerned citizen and transferred 15 dogs and one rabbit to the group’s placement partners who will continue to care for the animals until they are adopted.
On the other side of the continent, 20 more dogs were saved from a hoarding situation where they had been living in confined quarters in a small apartment outside of Montreal. After enduring a life without proper medical care and individualized attention, these dogs will now have a second chance in loving, lifelong homes.
