Abandoned Dogs Rescued in Wicomico County

Posted:

SALISBURY, Md. - For over a year, neighbors complained repeatedly to the Human Society and Animal Control about two abandoned dogs at 123 Shamrock Drive in Salisbury.

The dogs were left in the abandoned home with no electricity and in horrible conditions. Neighbors say that they would often bark and whine.  

The issue escalated and the Wicomico County Sheriff's Department intervened.  They gave the owner of the dogs an ultimatum, and on Monday night, the dogs were surrendered to a rescue group.    

Neighbors say they are upset that the issue took this long to resolve.  Some say they are concerned that the Human Society and Animal Control did not step in and assist with the situation.  The Sheriff's Department privately met with director of the Human Society Tuesday to try and get more answers.

The dogs were found isolated, in separate rooms.  They suffered from skin allergies and where checked by a vet Tuesday.  The are currently staying in temporary homes until permanent housing is found.
