The Inland Valley Humane Society and SPCA reports that 11 dogs being kept in inhumane conditions were rescued on Wednesday from a Diamond Bar residence. All of the animals are currently being cared for at the society’s shelter in Pomona, where they are being evaluated and treated by veterinarians.
The society’s investigators responded to a tip that dogs were being housed in deplorable conditions at a home located on Summit Ridge in Diamond Bar.
With help from the LA County Sheriff’s Department, Animal Services Supervisor Beth Les led the team of humane officers and oversaw the search and seizure. They responded with several rescue units and found the animals living in filth and suffering from a lack of basic care.
The society said officers also found four dead animals that had been stored in a freezer at the residence. The home was reportedly covered with feces and trash.
Eight of the eleven dogs are currently available for adoption. The society intends to pursue charges against the individuals involved.
Anyone interested in adoption should contact the adoption department at 909-623-9777, ext. 611 or 612. To make a tax–deductible donation to the rescue fund, visit www.ivhsdonate.org.
