Dogs in Need of Homes
On Tuesday, December 20, 2017, Beaumont Animal Control was dispatched to a call in the 1200 block of Beaumont Avenue to check on the welfare of an animal in that location. While Animal Control Officers were out at the location they observed two dogs that were running loose. ACO attempted to assist the dogs, but the dogs were able to get away and ran back to a residence on Beaumont Avenue.
Animal Control Officers made contact at that residence and found a family living in the home with approximately 27 dogs and 3 cats. Due to the condition of the home, the amount of animals living in the home and the children that were also located, Animal Control Officers requested the assistance of Beaumont Police Officers to conduct an investigation into the welfare of the family.
While at the location officers determined that four adults and four children were residing in the home, the ages of the children ranged from 3 to 14 years of age. The conditions of the home were so poor that the children, animals and adults had been living with animal feces and urine throughout, including their sleeping and eating areas, creating a health and safety hazard for everyone, especially the children. Beaumont Police Department requested the assistance of Child Protective Services (CPS) to assess the safety of the children.
The owner of the dogs agreed to sign over all of the animals to the Animal Control Officers and all 27 dogs and 3 cats were transported to the Ramona Humane Society for adoption. Due to the overwhelming amount of animals that were impounded and received by Ramona Humane-Society, we would like to ask that any residents who might have room in their hearts and homes to open up to a new pet, would consider adopting one of these animals and giving them a new home for the holidays.
For information on how to help or adopt one of the animals impounded yesterday, please contact the Ramona Humane Society directly by dialing 951-654-8002.
