Several Chihuahuas are up for adoption at Tri-Valley shelters after Livermore police rescued them from “filthy” conditions at a Livermore hoarder.

Roughly 50 chihuahuas are looking for adoption after Livermore police rescued them from “filthy” conditions last month.

The Livermore Police Department said that it was made aware that more than 50 chihuahuas were living in hazardous conditions. This was at a private home in north Livermore. Many were reportedly found in crates with no food or water.

Finally, the LPD’s Animal Services Officer Kathy Holmes, Community Service Specialist Joanna Johnson, and Pleasanton Police Department’s Animal Services Officer Frankie Ayers found that the owner was hoarding the dogs and unable to care for them.

The Livermore Hoarder Case

The dogs were transported to East County Animal Shelter. LPD’s Animal Services Officer also submitted a complaint to the District Attorney’s Office, and the incident is under investigation.

On Friday, fifteen dogs are available for adoption at Oakland Animal Services. Twelve of these dogs are available for adoption at Dublin SPCA. Ten are available at Valley Humane Society, and twelve others at East County Animal Shelter.

Moreover, anyone interested in adoption or helping the shelters financially can contact the tops directly:

In December, the Pleasanton Police Department said it is seeing a “sharp increase” in the number of abandoned pups.

That included multiple guinea pigs found overnight in a dumpster. However, in California, animal abandonment and neglect are classified as misdemeanors. Also, animal cruelty can be upgraded to a felony, depending on the severity of the case.
