The RSPCA and District Council of the Copper Coast attended a property near Kadina last week where more than 30 dogs had been living in unsatisfactory conditions.
The owner had been issued with an animal welfare notice and ordered to immediately decrease the number of dogs at the property and improve the living conditions for those left.
The region’s RSPCA inspector Pieter Mur and council’s dog control officer Gary Oliver returned to the property on Friday and found living conditions of the remaining dogs had significantly improved.
Twenty-four dogs had been surrendered to the RSPCA and Animal Welfare League, with a further 10 dogs expected to be surrendered this week.
“The RSPCA and council inspectors will continue to provide advice and guidance to the owner and monitor the welfare of the three remaining animals at the property to ensure they continue to be adequately cared for and de-sexed,” RSPCA SA media and public relations coordinator Jess
