Animal Control Supervisor Lanny Hall reported August 16 that these two poodles were found abandoned and wandering around Heritage Park. A resident brought them into the City of Taylor Animal Shelter. Eventually, Hall and Mayor Rick Sollars took them to Southpointe Veterinary Hospital in neighboring Allen Park.
“They were treated like a king and queen as they were shaved down, spayed and neutered, nails trimmed and heart worm tested,” Hall said. “They were given vaccinations and had health check ups.”
“It was shocking to see the conditions of the two dogs at Heritage Park,” Mayor Sollars said. “They were in such poor condition it was hard to tell they were even dogs.”
Mayor Sollars, Hall and the team from the Southpointe facility are happy to report that “Fanny” and “Flip” are on the road to recovery. Mayor Sollars said that the two dogs will likely stay in the facility for about a week before being moved to the Taylor Animal Shelter. With the help of the Rescue Group Task, the City of Taylor will be looking to having them adopted or rescued together.
“They are about 5 years old,” Hall said. “Our main goal is for them to stay together.”
