Two dogs found on the doorstep of Florida Highway Patrol’s headquarters back in June could be euthanized on Monday unless they are rescued.
The dogs, named George and Gracie after they were found, were adopted by a secretary with the agency. But she had trouble keeping the dogs in her yard, and several times they broke through her fence.
According to FHP, she surrendered them to Orange County Animal Services because she said they needed more help than she could provide.
However, the shelter says the dogs are aggressive toward other dogs, so they will not adopt George and Gracie out to the public. They want a rescue to take the dogs.
Orange County Animal Services spokesperson Diane Summers says they work with almost 50 rescue groups and hope one will step up and take the dogs.
Sgt. Kim Montes, spokesperson for Florida Highway Patrol, says the woman who originally adopted George and Gracie is trying to help find the dogs a new home.
One of the dogs also tested positive for heartworm and will need treatment.
The dogs each shelter numbers, which makes it easier to find the dogs. Gracie is A267311. George is A267312.
