Colorado Humane Society & S.P.C.A helps 18 dogs and puppies after home is destroyed by fire

February 5, 2019

Colorado Humane Society & S.P.C.A. helped remove and transport 15 dogs and three puppies from a Conejos County, Colo. home after it was destroyed by a fire last month. The animals, which included puppies as young as six days old, were transported to the Dumb Friends League in Denver for care and treatment.

The dogs were surrendered to Colorado Humane Society & S.P.C.A following the fire, which left the owners hospitalized with critical injuries. A good Samaritan cared for the animals until they were transported to the Dumb Friends League.

The puppies, whose mother did not survive the fire, are currently in a foster home where they are being bottle-fed and provided with round-the-clock care. All dogs and puppies were evaluated medically and behaviorally and will receive any necessary treatment prior to becoming available for adoption.

Anyone wishing to help provide this critical care and help aid in the animals’ recovery can visit to donate to Colorado Humane Society & S.P.C.A.
