Confiscated puppies need home

Three puppies rescued from a local pet store are now up for adoption at the Marshall County Animal Shelter.

Meanwhile, the shelter needs your help as it's left with some hefty veterinarian bills.

The Pet Shop, Pet Stop in Moundsville was raided last week after reports of sick animals. Store owner Tammy Sue Conrad has been charged with three counts of animal cruelty.

Three Shih Tzu puppies were taken from the store and treated at Town & Country animal hospital.

Shelter director John Yanen said the dogs are 10 weeks old, healthy and ready-to-go.

"There are two girls, they're both black in color and one boy he's black and white," said Yanen.

"We got the breeder to surrender the animals that way we aren't in litigation for months," said Yanen.

Yanen says the owner of the Pet Shop, Pet Stop was selling the puppies for a breeder and didn't actually own the dogs.

Other animals from the store were allegedly sold to customers sick with parvo. Some of those customers say the dogs later died.

Yanen said the dogs were given a clean bill of health and released to the shelter this week, but he says that didn't come cheap.

"The rescue league has paid the vet bill in full, but now we need donations to make up for that money," said Yanen.

If you'd like to donate to the shelter, contact it at 304-845-9770 or MCASwv@gmail.com.
