We’re Treating 9 Abandoned Chihuahuas

April 17, 2018

The dogs had been stuffed in a 2-foot by 3- foot crate and left in the alley near 1020 15th Street N. A woman found the crate and contacted police, who brought the dogs to Pawlicious Poochie Pet Rescue.

After initial examinations, vets reported that the dogs were covered in feces and fleas, suffering from bad skin conditions. One dog doesn’t have an eye, and some of the female dogs might be pregnant. The Saint Petersburg Police Department is investigating the case as animal cruelty.

Jaime McKnight, the founder of Pawlicious Poochie Pet Rescue, is raising money to help these dogs. The cost of treating each one could be around $1,000.

Partridge Animal Hospital is proud to treat these dogs and help them have a safer future.
