Clay County Animal Services asks for volunteers, donations after 70 dogs, cats removed from Middleburg home

Clay County Animal Services had 70 dogs and cats turned over to them on Tuesday after the owner said they could no longer care for the animals.

The owner is not facing charges.

Clay County Animal Services said Wednesday that staff has been actively working to continue health exams and partner with rescues to help with adoptions for the animals.

More information will be released on when they will be available for adoption and where you can adopt them in the upcoming days, officials said.

But the county needs help in the form of donations.

People can drop off items during normal business hours at Clay County Animal Services in Green Cove Springs. The agency also needs volunteers to help with the animals’ care.

You can find information on how to sign up, along with needed donation items, by visiting the county’s website.

The animals were removed from the Middleburg home and were treated at the Clay County fairgrounds. The dogs will stay at the fairgrounds, and the cats will be taken to the animal shelter, the county said on Tuesday.

There are dogs of all sizes and ages, some are puppies just a few weeks old. The older ones appear frightened but also appear to be in good health.

Rescuers are thankful the animals are coming out alive and are in good health.

Comments are closed, but trackbacks and pingbacks are open.
