Local animal shelters are asking for some help after more than 340 dogs were handed over to Hillsborough County.

A Tampa animal breeding business lost a years-long court battle after the county witnessed animal abuse. So happy Hillsborough took action and got this taken care of, these poor dogs. According to WFLA News Channel 8, Animal Control began transferring the dogs from the breeding facility to the Pet Resource Center at 440 N. Falkenburg Road this morning.

The county says the dogs are mostly small breeds like Maltese, Shih Tzus, terriers and schnauzers. All of the new pups are not adoptable just yet. Since the Pet Resource Center is already over capacity, they are asking for people to adopt or foster the dogs they already have at their shelter. There is so many ways to help other than adopting – List of items needed, HERE. You can make a monetary donation, HERE.
