Rescuers Save Dying Man’s 21 Dogs Left In An Abandoned Store

Animal Rescue Corps (ARC) is a nonprofit animal protection organization with a mission to end animal suffering through direct and compassionate action. They want to inspire humanity to treat animals with the highest ethical standards.

In one of their recent rescues, ARC was able to save 21 dogs abandoned in an old building in Lafayette, Tennessee. The dogs were stranded inside the abandoned store, left to fend for themselves. The dogs’ owner is in hospice care, and the dogs were left inside the store without food or water for up to a month.

Macon County Animal Control was contacted by the owner of the building who visited the place when he was about to serve an eviction notice to the man who was not been able to pay rent for over a year. The owner saw the abandoned dogs and contacted animal control.

And since they lack resources to do the rescue, the animal control officer then reached out to ARC for assistance. They knew these poor animals need help desperately and immediately.

When the rescuers got inside the building, the dogs were in horrible condition. They were malnourished, dehydrated, and emaciated, and the place was filthy. They had to wear masks to do the rescue.

According to ARC’s Facebook post, the place had several inches of compacted feces, empty glass bottles and cans, broken furniture, mattresses, tires, broken large appliances, and other hazardous trash covered the floors and filled the crowded rooms.

Thankfully, the rescuers were able to remove all the dogs from the property and were able to transport them to an emergency shelter. There they will examine the dogs, and give them the necessary medical care and vaccinations.
