Wayside waifs rescues dogs from southwest Missouri

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

Thirteen adult dogs and one puppy have been rescued from less than ideal conditions in Southwest Missouri. The dogs are in Kansas City tonight.

Wayside Waifs says four members of its animal rescue and response team answered the call for help in rural Southwest Missouri, making the journey to the location about six hours from the Kansas City area.

Wayside Waifs said it was contacted by the Missouri Department of Agriculture about a group called Kindred Spirits Rescue. Working directly with the owner of the rescue, the 13 adult dogs and one puppy were voluntarily surrendered.

For the past two years, official said the owner had been using a run-down two-car garage to house the animals. Most of the adult dogs came to the Kindred Spirits Rescue as puppies, and have been there for two years waiting to find a home. Finding a home for all the animals is something Wayside Waifs will now try to do.

"The dogs seemed happy and relieved to be out of those conditions," said Ryan Berry, Wayside's director of shelter services. "These animals are safe and sound at Wayside Waifs, and are receiving proper medical care, enrichment and love they deserve."

The dogs arrived at Wayside Waifs late Monday night. Wayside's staff is now working one-on-one with them to assess their conditions and help them adjust to their new conditions, so they can be the very best companion animals possible.
