Photos: 25 dogs rescued from the streets of Mexico receive treatment in San Diego
SAN DIEGO – Twenty-five dogs rescued from the streets of Mexico are now receiving treatment in San Diego.
Some will be adopted soon after arriving Thursday at Rancho Coastal Humane Society in Encinitas, the latest in a series of rescues involving the humanitarian society and partner organizations. The dogs, including some puppies, were taken in by Rescue Fenix, a shelter in the Mexican state of Sonora.
“These dogs were rescued from the streets, alleys and any other place where they could find safety,” said RCHS spokesman John Van Zante. “Many of them wouldn’t have survived if they hadn’t been taken to save Fenix in Obregon.”
The rescue transferred the puppies from Sonora to Escondido, and then they were taken to RCHS.
Some of the dogs were taken to Camp Pendleton, where they will be part of pet services, and two were destined for Chihuahua Rescue in San Diego. Most of the rest will be cared for at RCHS until they are ready for adoption.
RCHS medical staff carried out the first exams when the dogs and puppies arrived with more exams, vaccinations and medical treatments expected in the days and weeks to come. Each dog will be sterilized or neutered and microchipped before being made available for adoption.
