As volunteers at Nate's Honor Animal Rescue bathe, treat and feed the more than 60 animals they confiscated from Napier's Family Farm and Animal Rescue yesterday, they continue to work to stretch their resources.
In response to a call they received about hundreds of animals left unattended and who appeared to be suffering from ailments such as mange, heartworm and other diseases, volunteers from the East County shelter made hastily made space for the cats and dogs.
After pulling a 15-hour work day Feb. 5, and with some animals suffering from costly illnesses which require medical attention, Nate's Honor Animal Rescue asks for help.
"If you ever wanted to adopt a dog, now's the time," said Karen Slomba, associate director of Nate's. "Please, adopt available dogs to make room for these new ones. And there's donations. This has been an expensive ordeal for us. Monetary donations are always needed."
The Manatee County Sherriff's Office released a statement regarding the raid of Napier's Animal Rescue, citing the euthanization of 12 animals yesterday, along with eight more found dead in shallow holes on the premises.
Napier's Animal Rescue owners may face charges of animal cruelty and fraud.
