VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. — The Virginia Beach SPCA has taken in 45 dogs after they were rescued from a reported hoarding situation on the Eastern Shore, and now they’re reaching out to the public for help in covering the costs of caring for them.
According to a post on their Facebook page, the dogs are a portion of more than 100 that were surrendered.
The dogs were described as “scared, dirty, and covered in fleas.” They said the dogs had never been outside the house from which they were rescued.
The organization said that some of the dogs would go to other local rescue organizations, but that the majority would remain under their care.
“They are currently getting settled at our shelter where they can be bathed and seen by our veterinarians,” they said.
