ASPCA Battles Blizzard to Care for 100 Rescued Dogs

ASPCA Battles Blizzard to Care for 100 Rescued Dogs

Mother Nature wasn’t on our side when she sent a deadly blizzard to hammer Kansas and Missouri earlier this week. The heavy snow snapped tree branches and left more than 100,000 Midwesterners without power. At least two deaths were blamed on the off-season storm.

Despite the whiteout conditions and frigid temperatures, our first responders worked around the clock to care for nearly 100 dogs rescued from a multi-state dog fighting bust.

“The weather certainly wasn’t ideal, but we weren’t about to give up on these dogs,” reports Tim Rickey, Vice President of the ASPCA Field Investigations & Response team. “It’s our job to provide these animals with the best possible care, and our responders are trained to handle obstacles as they arise.”

The dogs were rescued after search warrants were executed by the FBI in Kansas,Missouri and Texas. The animals were found outside in freezing temperatures.

Is it possible that any of these dogs are lost or stolen, with families searching for them?

Will the dogs be visible to the public (photos or film, so that families with missing or lost dogs can view them?
