A team of animal service workers responded to the Town of Danville on Friday after getting reports of hoarding activity of animals that were being kept unsafe.
According to Contra Costa Animal Services, they identified approximately 70-75 dogs on the Danville property and approximately 25 cats.
Animals Services worked with representatives from Animal Rescue Foundation, East Bay SPCA and Berkeley Humane to safely remove the majority of the animals from the property to be medically evaluated and sheltered.
Collectively, ARF, EBSPCA and BHS took approximately 42 animals into their shelters.
Contra Costa Animal Services took 32 of the dogs and five of the cats were brought to Contra Costa Animal Services. Six of the dogs that were brought to CCAS had to be euthanized due to their medical condition. The remaining dogs and cats are currently receiving care and are in stable condition at our shelter.
Animal Services will continue to be assessing the remaining animals on the property.
