“During the week of February 14th we have accepted large shipments of food and supplies from the animal shelter in preparation for more dogs,” said Superintendent Amy Rabeau. “We currently have 4 dogs and more on the way once the Vet clears them to be moved. Apparently, these dogs were in horrendous shape when they were seized. The four we currently have out at Pt Mac are shy but loving all the attention they are receiving.”
