A homeless couple living in a four-door Pontiac sedan in Kenosha, Wisconsin were found in a fast food restaurant parking lot with 17 dogs in their vehicle, reports FoxNews.
Kenosha police received a call about the suspicious car in the nearby Wendy’s parking lot, and when they arrived at the scene found more than a dozen dogs in need of veterinary help and nourishment. The dogs were all transported to the Safe Harbor Humane Society where they are all being treated.
According to Megan Gonerman of the organization, all of the dogs suffer from lack of proper medical care and need grooming. “And on top of that the emotional aspect is that the dogs were really nervous and scared as they came in.” It is not known if criminal charges will be pressed against the couple or if they will be charged for the dogs’ ongoing medical expenses. The shelter has spent more than $7,000 in medical and grooming expenses on the dogs.
If the couple is unable to repay the shelter for expenses, the dogs will eventually be eligible for adoption. Let’s face it; living in a car with over a dozen dogs is no life for humans or dogs.
