71 dogs seized by Riverside County Animal Services in Winchester back on August 11th 2021 are looking to move into your home.

 

They have been checked out, cleaned up, and are now available for adoption or transfer to rescue organizations.

 

Animal Services served a seizure warrant John Dunlap who had been living on land he did not own in an unincorporated Riverside County area in Winchester. 

 

He set up a makeshift dog rescue, but did not have a kennel permit from the county and had way too many dogs than he could handle.

 

Of the 76 dogs found on the property, 5 had to be euthanized.

 

50 of the dogs did have microchips, but many of them were registered to Mr Dunlap, who has opted to surrender the dogs.

 

Adoption fees are just $20 as part of a monthlong Clear the Shelters campaign.

 

Although the dogs are at the county’s San Jacinto facility, the adoption process will occur at the Coachella Valley

Animal Campus. Visit: https://rcdas.org/petharbor/secured_PetHarbAdoptSearch.html
