53 Lhasa Apsos have been surrendered in the largest single rescue in the shelter’s history.

The Susquehanna Animal Shelter in Hartwick Seminary (near Cooperstown) is overflowing with dogs as a Milford resident turned then over the shelter. Shelter Executive Director Stacie Haynes tells AllOtsego.com that since the animals were given up voluntarily, she doesn’t expect any charges will be filed.

Hayes tells AllOtsego.com that while some of the dogs are inbred, they were not abused, and are currently being treated for fleas, skin problems, “cherry eyes” and other ailments. According to their FB Page, The Susquehanna Animal Shelter is working with other shelters to house some of the dogs. Delaware Valley Humane Society and Heart of the Catskill Humane Society will be picking up some of the Lhasa Apsos tomorrow, October 2, 2018, with more shelters pitching in soon.

At this time the Shelter accepting financial donations as all of the dogs need flea/tick treatment, deworming, blood tests, fecal tests, vaccinations, microchip, to be spayed/neutered and have other various medical needs addressed.

You can also make a physical donation or stop by during business hours Tuesday-Saturday 12 to 5 at 4841 State Highway 28, Cooperstown NY 13326. They're also looking for volunteers and their next New Volunteer Orientation is Tuesday, October 16 6:00 at the shelter.
