Animal Services rescues nearly 50 dogs from home Tuesday

On Tuesday, May 11th, 2021, Turlock Police Animal Services officers were made aware of a residence in Turlock that was over the legal limit of three dogs per household. Animal Services officers made contact with the resident, who said the animals were believed to be strays found around Turlock and agreed to surrender the animals.

On Wednesday, May 12th, 2021, Animal Services removed 49 dogs from the property. It is believed that the dogs increased in population from breeding. All the dogs have been examined, are currently being treated, and none will be euthanized. The dogs have all been scanned for microchips, however, none had any.

Animal Services is currently holding all the dogs until Tuesday, May 18th, 2021 to give anyone who lost their pet time to reclaim them if they are among this group. After Tuesday, a list of up to 50 people will be created of anyone interested in adopting a dog. On the following Tuesday, May 25th, 2021, a drawing of names will take place; first drawn gets first pick.

The drawing will be featured live on the Turlock Police Animal Services Facebook page, which you can access by clicking here. Any dogs not adopted will be released to animal rescues.

Beginning Tuesday, May 18th, 2021, to place your name on the list for the animal drawing, please contact Animal Services at 209-656-3140 Monday through Saturday, between the hours of 10:00 am and 2:00 pm.

As a reminder, please spay or neuter your pets to help control the pet population. Low cost spay and neuter program information can be found at the Animal Services website, which you can access by clicking here. In addition, please microchip your pets just in case they get lost or run away, so that they can be safely returned home. Animal Services will microchip your pet by appointment. Please call 209-656-3140 Monday through Saturday, between the hours of 10:00 am and 2:00 pm.
