The tenants and owners of the dogs are currently actively sought.
On Wednesday March 17, in Bruay-la-Buissière in the Pas-de-Calais, the Arche 62 animal association, helped by the police services and a team of firefighters, saved two dogs, apparently mistreated and starving as reported by our colleagues from L’Avenir de l’Artois
A vital rescue
It is not known how long the poor animals were locked up, alone, in the dark in the housing, and without food. It was the social landlord who contacted them after a neighbor gave the alert following the barking of the dogs. “On site we therefore intervene accompanied by the police, an OPJ, a bailiff, a locksmith, representatives of the social landlord and community firefighters” relays the association on its Facebook page .
Since then, the two Malinois- type doggies have been found in a state of extreme thinness and taken in at the Béthune refuge. “A story that ends well, but which could have been dramatic”, concludes the association in its message. As for the owners, it seems that they have left their home since March 13, leaving their dogs there, locked up and without food and therefore doomed to die. They have since been actively sought by the police. The Arche 62 association has also decided to file a complaint for animal abuse.
