Emaciated five-month-old puppies need urgent rescue from Orange County shelter

See also

Two emaciated puppies were brought into the Orange County Animal Shelter on Friday; they are estimated to be five-months old and weigh only 11 pounds each. The puppies are being kept in an isolation unit because they are dangerously malnourished.

It's beyond belief how anyone could allow such horrendous animal neglect to happen. Meanwhile the welfare of these two puppies is of paramount importance.

According to Animal Control:

"All animals will get examined by a vet and they will receive medications as needed and additional/wet food to help them gain weight, but the idea is to get them into a foster/home/rescue."
