It was a huge community effort of animal advocates and humane organizations, but no dogs had to be euthanized at the Manatee County Animal Services in Palmetto, Fla. on Monday at 5:00 p.m. reported the Bradenton Herald.

On Thursday, an email circulated to different rescue groups explaining the overcrowded conditions at the Manatee County Animal Services, would have to result in some of the larger dogs being euthanized if proper placement couldn't be found.

The shelter has been overcrowded since February when more than 300 neglected animals were seized from Napier's Log Cabin Horse and Animal Sanctuary. Many of the animals were transferred to other rescue organizations, but Manatee County was still in possession of several who have not been released and made available for adoption because of pending legal ramifications.

On Friday, two dogs were adopted.

On Saturday, five dogs were adopted.

Two more dogs left on Monday morning, and the Florida Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in Lakeland arrived on Monday to take the last three in trouble. Arriving in three vans, the SPCA took an additional 14 more dogs to ensure space for Manatee County animals if needed.
