A new city dog ordinance means time is running out for "The Seneca Nine"

In an effort to save The Seneca Nine, an adoption event is being held today at Saluda River, their Facebook page reported February 9.

The Seneca Nine are a group of dogs who were dumped as puppies in a high kill shelter. Dot's Place Animal Haven pulled them in August at the request of a northern rescue. Unfortunately, things fell through, and the dogs are once again in danger after the rescue backed out.

An adoption event is being held from 11a.m. to 5 p.m. on Feburary 9 at the Saluda River on Highway 123 in Seneca next to Seneca Family Restaurant.

The city of Seneca has passed a law that states a resident can only have three dogs in their yard. Even though these dogs technically belong to the shelter, the city won't allow them to be kept in the back yard where they've been living.

Three of the dogs have been spoken for by a local rescue. This means at least four of the remaining six dogs must find new homes or a rescue by the end of the day. If not, they will be turned in to the high-kill shelter they were originally rescued from.

The dogs are approximately 11 months old. Two are terrier mixes and four are hound mixes. Betty Boop, a female, looks like a pointer. They are all playful and friendly and get along with other dogs. They've had no training, so would have to be house trained if kept inside.

All of them are spayed/neutered and up to date on vaccinations. Transport can be found to anywhere in the United States. Photos of the Seneca Nine can be found on their Facebook page.
