“We did have puppies with coccidia. They were all vet checked. They went on meds for 10 days. Thursday was their last dose,” said Tammy Staley. “They weren’t sick dogs that were dumped. Their meds were done.”
One puppy who had tested positive for Parvo and the three who had ringworm had also been treated, Staley said.
The dogs that have been found are currently being cared for at Eagle’s Nest Veterinary Clinic in Plattsburgh.
According to police, the puppies may be in one of these general areas: Macomb State Park and surroundings forests and the following roads in the Plattsburgh, Saranac and Redford areas: Norrisville Road, Davis Pond Road, Burnt Hill Road, Strackville Road, Collins Road, Cane Road, Pup Hill Road, Maggy Road, Soper Road, Ore Bed Road, and Kent Falls Road.
The seven remaining dogs consist of two Chihuahuas, two Chihuahua mixes, a corgi, and two Rottweiler mixes.
Anyone who locates one of the puppies should call city police at 563-3411.
At this time Racicot said no charges have been filed against Michael, though the investigation is continuing.
As of Wednesday morning Eagle’s Nest Vetrinary Clinic reported that another dog, a German Shepherd mix, had been located. They were unsure of where that puppy had been found.
Police are asking anyone who wants to make adoption inquiries or who wants to make a donation to help the animals to call the Plattsburgh city Police.
