Grants Pass, OR – On September 21, Josephine County Sheriff’s deputies received a tip that malnourished dogs were locked inside of the Pawsitive K9 Solutions Board and Learn facility in Grants Pass. According to a release from the authorities, after receiving a search warrant, deputies entered the locked business and found 13 dogs in various states of malnourishment.
The news release states:
Some of the canines required immediate care from veterinarians who helped after hours to see them in a timely manner. The living conditions of the animals revealed they had been neglected for some time. The canines were transported to the Josephine County Animal Shelter.
Prior to the police raid on the business, at least one of the dog’s owners posted a video on TikTok, stating that his dog was inside and the owners would not respond. The man alleges that the business owners left on vacation, with no one to care for the dogs inside.
According to the news release, the owners of the business were not present, but they have been identified. The authorities are forwarding the case to the Josephine County District Attorney’s Office for review.
Donations for the dogs’ care can be made to the animal shelter. They have specifically requested donations of hoses, bleach, laundry detergent, and nitrile exam gloves. You can donate funds directly on the shelter’s website here.
