WESTFIELD, Mass. (THE WESTFIELD NEWS) – Westfield police officers were called to a home on Day Avenue, Friday afternoon, and discovered five dogs in very bad shape, as well as an elderly couple in poor health.
According to police logs, a call for an animal complaint came in at 3:23 p.m. Friday.
The reported on its Facebook page Sunday that when Animal Control Officer Kerri A. Francis responded, she “was appalled at the conditions of the house and the dogs.” Five Cavalier King Charles Spaniels were removed from the home.
“The owner’s were very cooperative and agreed to sign over the dogs to us, ” according to Facebook. The post states that the animal control officers were also concerned about the “sick, elderly couple.”
One of 80 comments left on WRAS’s Facebook page concerning the dogs stated: “The whole situation is sad. The elderly couple probably has no family checking on them and, that is just the start of a sad story that happens to a lot of the elderly who get dementia and a whole lot of other things and then the poor animals who are suffering. Let us not judge but let us just try to understand and maybe help prevent it next time and look at your neighbors instead of ignoring them!”
“We reached out to several local agencies to assist this couple, ” the WRAS post stated. “We hope that the couple receives the help they so need.”
Animal Control Officer Margaret Terkelsen said Monday afternoon that the couple is receiving services.
The dogs appear to have been living in crates and are suffering from extreme neglect including heavy matts preventing the dogs from walking properly or holding their heads up normally, according to Facebook.
The shelter will be getting help from Blandford Animal Hospital. The dogs–one boy and four girls–were transported there Monday morning for grooming, Terkelsen said. “They are a little timid, ” he said, “but they are very sweet dogs.”
According to the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club website, , these dogs can cost between $1, 800 and $3, 500 for purebreds. These five dog, dubbed the “Fab Five” by the WRAS, appear to be purebred, said Terkelsen.
Some Cavalier King Charles Spaniel rescue groups have been calling the shelter, she said, so she isn’t sure when or from where the dogs will be put up for adoption.
Since people have expressed an interest in donating to their care, the WRAS said donations can be sent directly to: Blandford Animal Hospital, 46 Woronoco Rd, Blandford, MA, 01008. A gofundme page has also been set up at
Alyssa Regalia set up the page saying, “My friend works in Animal Control and these dogs were taken into custody yesterday.” As of Monday afternoon, more than $1, 200 of the $5, 000 goal had been raised.
“We thank you for your donation, in their care. Like most municipal animal shelters, it is always a struggle to find ways to help the animals in our care, ” according to a WRAS Facebook post.where tech tools where to start business from home which technology precedes horsemanship how often is technology used where develop film why startup culture is bad from where boat products manufactured which solutions contain electrolytes where to find device manager on laptop when was startup filmed why tech investment banking how many equipment are used in rhythmic gymnastics who company owns most funeral homes who entrepreneur definition where to use entrepreneur where to go from london where to find device name on laptop what entrepreneur do who technology transfer hub who is the greatest entrepreneur where to produce oxygen where product key windows 10 how many times do entrepreneurs fail what technology was used to build the pyramids what product to use for curly hair when to discontinue a product how much startup equity should i get whos the manufacturer who buy products and who use product who is an entrepreneur give an example when startup become unicorn where to get workers compensation insurance how often answer how technology has changed our lives where to cool solution re2 which manager won the most trophies where product key steam how product management works with ux what technology was used in ww2 how often is frequent when company is coming who makes dr equipment which system produces blood cells what products contain benzene why company repurchase stock dance where solutions whose product is sql what manager has been ejected the most where's device management on iphone when products held in inventory are sold where to print business cards teaching where are you from whom to how farm products what science is taught in 11th grade where is the source located when design user interface how often does technology malfunction how management is an art how many start up business fail when tech companies lie to us where to study engineering how much technology is used in schools when business is slow how to roadmap a project which entrepreneur had a significant impact where is development length why entrepreneurs are bad at relationships which workers does cosatu represent which entrepreneur is not intended in innovative who technology in healthcare which solutions would you use the man company best products who system framework why equipment calibration is important how far can technology help save the situation what development happens in the third trimester whose company is fabletics who devised the contract with america how design a t shirt why management consulting interview answer which solutions conduct electricity when project is not ready gif how products are passed on hand to the customer how often growth scans why manager is important how many solution does the system have which manufacturer sells the most electric vehicles who product catalogue startup capital how much science diet to feed puppy where to go from tech support who rehydration solution how teaching should take place how to start online startup who entrepreneur definition who manufactures moderna vaccine where to project voice how many solution are there for equation log4 x 1 when entrepreneurs face a significant what design style is cb2 where science meets beauty which london airport is closest to heathrow which london airport to fly into how to find development opportunities how startup funding works where entrepreneurship came from how many start ups in the uk how much project manager earn in india how much engineering college in bangalore how many manufacturing companies are in nigeria which entrepreneur is associated with the financial industry what entrepreneur qualities where system root is the c drive what system is the liver in how far technology has advanced who is an entrepreneur give an example what teaching means to me
