Here is an email that was received awhile back. The pictures of these dogs are not included on this post but they were included in the email.

Subject: Rescued Dogs need Rescuing Again!!!
This is an emergency situation in L.A., CA!!!!! The dogs in the photos and many more, have been incarcerated at a boarding facility in the L.A. area for three or four months and they've lost hope! They were pulled from Devore Shelter by a well-intentioned rescuer, who got in over her head. Please look at the photos and the "Smilebox" and see the rest of their sad story!!!
Imagine ending up at Devore Shelter. Then being pulled by some kind person who promises to help you find a home. Imagine still being in a boarding facility three and four months later. These dogs ar suffering -- some are under a vet's care for being nearly starved to death! Some have fared better than others. Many are hungry and all have had little or no human contact for months and need to get out of this terrible situation immediately. These dogs are trusting us to help them. If every rescue who reads this appeal can help save even one dog, the emergency would be over!
The original rescuer has relinquished the dogs to English John, who has taken the responsibility of saving them, despite the fact he had nothing to do with pulling them. He says he will transport the dogs ANYWHERE to a good rescue and happy future!
Please take a look at the slide show on Smilebox (below) and see if there's anyone you can help -- please don't turn away from the longing in those beautiful faces!! All these dogs want is a warm, loving home with people to care for them! Right now, they're lost and lonely and in desperate need of help from the rescue community. Won't you help them, today, please?
Is this what you want for the Devore dogs?
