Dogs rescued from Austintown home, shelter seeking donations
A local animal shelter rescued two dogs from an Austintown home on Friday.
The Animal Charity of Ohio says they found the dogs in a home filled with garbage and debris.
They were found with matted hair and nails so long that they could not walk, according to Mary Louk, board president of Animal Charity of Ohio.
She adds that one was severely underweight, and the other is missing an eye, though they don't know why the dog is missing the eye and are investigating.
Louk says they are now trying to find out who was responsible for the dogs and will file charges against them.
Right now, they need donations to help cover veterinary costs since they are without a vet right now, and have to go to an outside source.
