The Central California SPCA confiscated more than 130 dogs and three cats from Noah’s Friends Animal Sanctuary, a nonprofit no-kill shelter in Orange Cove, after being alerted to suspected neglect.

The CCSPCA served a search warrant and found dogs and cats suffering from a variety of medical conditions and lack of basic care. Many dogs on the premises were found extremely emaciated and suffering from parasites and other diseases due to neglect. Many were living in small crates with no food or water.

The animals were removed and transferred to the CCSPCA where they are being examined and will receive necessary medical care.

The case will be presented to the District Attorney for filing.

The CCSPCA is seeking help in funding the medical treatments and supplies needed to save as many dogs and cats rescued from the Orange Cove shelter as possible. Many of the animals will require weeks of treatment and would do best in a foster home environment.
