Neglected Dogs in Berks County Need Your Help

The Animal Rescue League of Berks County has come across multiple neglected dogs over the last few weeks and they need your help.

On Sunday, July 9, a pair of dogs, Franklin and Sally were taken into care after being found starved and neglected. "Franklin is holding on and getting stronger every day," said Liz McCauley Executive Director of the Animal Rescue League of Berks County.

Sally was found on Sunday, July 9, shortly after giving birth to stillborn puppies.

However Sally, who had just delivered stillborn puppies, "has a lot more complicated health issue." McCauley added.

The owner of these two has been located and charged with multiple counts of animal cruelty.

Another instance of neglect was found along Lincoln Road in Exeter on Monday, July 17.

Walton was found along Lincoln Road in Exeter on Monday, July 17.

Walton, a hound mix, was found almost 40 lbs underweight and immediately taken to a vet hospital. Unfortunately he passed away this week at 10 months old, and his owner remains a mystery.

"As the only animal rescue for all of Berks County, we see these situations much too often." Said McCauley.

The Animal Rescue League need your help to find Walton’s owner. If you recognize the dog or have any information regarding his owner please call (610)-373-8830 ext. 106.
