San Diego Humane Society saves 55 abandoned pets from 'deplorable' conditions in Golden Hill.
The San Diego Humane Society (SDHS) rescued more than four dozen animals from horrible conditions after their owner abandoned them following an eviction.
Fifty-five animals were rescued from a Golden Hill residence after its owner was evicted and left them behind, including 16 quails, 30 quail babies, eight kittens, and one cat. The animals were left without food or water, according to SDHS.
Although it's unclear how long the animals were left alone, the Humane Society stepped in to take them in on Wednesday. They are now being cared for at the San Diego Humane Society location.
We are always available to help pet owners who become overwhelmed by a crisis with their animals, and we can provide support before things get out of hand, stated a spokesman for SDHS in a statement.
While the animals are being cared for, the case is being investigated by the Humane Law Enforcement section. The SDHS has not stated when the animals would be available for adoption.
SDHS can be reached at (619) 299-7012 or on their website for assistance or resources.
