On Nov. 19, a one month old male puppy was found outside a shopping center in Mission Valley and then brought to the Department of Animal Services shelter. The puppy had his ears cruelly cut off and was in urgent need of veterinary care. The puppy was named Sunny by shelter staff and he has been in foster care following his surgery. His health is fine now.
On Dec. 7, a second puppy arrived at the County Animal Shelter with her ears cut off. It is believed the second puppy, named Cher by shelter staff, is a littermate to Sunny. Cher received veterinary care in Mexico for her ears and her prognosis is excellent. The Department is hoping to find two forever families to give Sunny and Cher the loving home the puppies deserve.
