Eighteen dogs with matted coats, some with feces stuck into their fur or suffering from eye trauma, were seized from a Jurupa Valley property Monday, Nov. 13, as part of an animal cruelty investigation, according to a Riverside County Department of Animal Services news release.

A concerned resident had alerted animal services officers after hearing a commotion at the property on Chris Court, where a 7-year-old terrier mix dog was being attacked by other dogs, the news release stated.

From a neighboring property, animal services officials determined the terrier needed immediate veterinary care and that at least five other dogs were living in what were described as “horrid conditions” in the city’s Glen Avon neighborhood.

Agency officials have been unable to reach the property owner. The 18 dogs were examined and treatment plans developed, that included medications, bathing and trimming of matted coats.

Because the dogs are considered confiscated pets, they are not currently available for adoption.

“These dogs were left in absolutely shameful conditions,” Animal Services Director Robert Miller was quoted as saying in the news release.
