According to Pam Townsend with WARL, nearly 20 of the dogs that arrived at the League on Dec. 21 have been adopted and about 20 dogs are also available for adoption. You can see one of the dogs available -- Sheltie Goji Berry -- here. Most of the dogs are smaller breeds.

Townsend says more dogs will become available after the behavior staff assesses them and they receive any necessary medical care. The dogs were immediately vaccinated and treated for fleas and ticks. According to Townsend, the first 30 dogs had intestinal parasites and infections of their eyes, ears, skin and teeth and were treated with medication. Some of dogs also have heart murmurs or broken boneswhile others are heartworm positive.
