The owner lived on the North Side and called an ambulance after having a health emergency, but later died and didn’t have anyone to take care of the dogs.

The dogs are well fed, but some have matted fur.

“They need some more medical evaluation. They need to be groomed up, and some of them need to be spayed and neutered, and then they’ll hit the adoption floor,” said Dan Rossi, the executive director of the Animal Rescue League. “So anybody that’s interested should call our adoptions department at the Animal Rescue League and we’ll get them on the list.”

The Golden Bone Pet Resort says they are grooming all the dogs at no charge to get them ready for adoption.

Anyone wanting more information can call the Animal Rescue League at (412) 345-7300.
