CASPCA transfers in 10 dogs from rural Virginia shelter

On Friday, the CASPCA Compassionate Care-A-Van traveled to Dinwiddie County Animal Shelter in Virginia to safely transport 10 Beagles back to our shelter. With limited space, the Beagles were at high risk of being euthanized due to overcrowding. The CASPCA immediately rose to the cause, and safely transferred the dogs back to the shelter. Upon arrival, all 10 Beagles received a thorough veterinary exam, and will soon be made available for adoption.

Charlottesville takes dogs rescued from South Korea meat farm

CASPCA takes in a group of mastiff’s rescued from South Korean meat farm through our Emergency Placement Partnership with HSUS.

A group of dogs rescued from a dog meat farm in South Korea, by Humane Society International (HSI) arrived in Virginia, where they were placed at the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA.

This group of dogs are part of 170 dogs HSI rescued from the dog meat farm in Namyangju, which is located a mere two hours’ drive from the Pyeongchang Olympic stadium. The dogs at the farm lived in deplorable conditions, with many suffering from eye infections, skin disease, as well as painful leg and paw sores from endless days of standing and sitting on thin wire mesh.

Please continue to follow us on social media and our website for updates on these dogs. We will share further updates and their progress while at the CASPCA.
