Ill owner’s 11 dogs need homes

The Nevada County Animal Shelter needs help from the community in finding homes for 11 dogs.

The dogs were brought to the shelter and released for adoption by the owner, who was hospitalized due to an illness and now requires extended medical care, said shelter Volunteer Coordinator Cheryl Wicks.

“They all need and deserve homes,” she said.

The canines up for adoption are four male and two female black lab mix puppies about four months old, three male and one female yellow lab mix adults, and one black lab/chow mix male adult.

“The dogs have been on the same property together and get along, so if someone out there has a lot of property and wants more than one, that would be great,” Wicks said. “We would prefer permanent homes for these dogs, but would welcome foster homes as well.”

For more information, call Wicks at 272-8833. Or visit the shelter at 14647 McCourtney Road in Grass Valley, open Monday to Friday, 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and Saturday between 10 a.m. and noon, or call 273-2179.
