Over 100 Neglected Dogs Discovered at Dog Lot in Mat-Su

Steve Heimel, APRN – Anchorage

The Matanuska Susitna Animal Shelter has a major problem to deal with – more than a hundred neglected dogs discovered at a dog lot off Montana Creek.  The owner of the dogs, Frank Rich, is facing charges.  He said he was doing his best to take care of the animals, but at least sixteen dead dogs were found on his lot, with the rest said to be in  “Horrible condition.”  Other animal shelters in the region are taking donations of dog food, bowls, bedding and other needed materials.  Animal control personnel say some of the dogs will probably have to be euthanized.
