Three dogs left outside an abandoned foreclosed home for weeks were rescued Tuesday after shelter operators said the pack was vulnerable to predators and starvation.
The dogs were left without food or water, but a Good Samaritan appeared to have taken over feeding duties until workers with the Glendale Humane Society, a no-kill shelter, picked up the trio Tuesday evening.
Representatives for Property Masters Realty discovered the dogs when they arrived to secure the two-story Glendale house on Delisle Court off North Verdugo Road.
"The whole home was full of urine and feces," said Erik Reppe, chief financial officer for Property Masters Realty. The house was foreclosed on Aug. 3, 2009, but the tenants had avoided eviction until late June.
The dogs were picked up and taken to the Glendale Humane Society after word of their condition spread.
"I thought if they don't get out of here, they could easily be mountain lion or coyote bait," she said.
