Rescued Sac County dogs can finally get more invasive procedures

Posted:

Animal rescue groups can now move to the next phase of treatment for the dogs confiscated from a rural Sac County farm two weeks ago.

Owner Mary Boderson signed custody over to the rescue crews that took in the animals, including the Animal Rescue League in Des Moines, the Cedar Valley Humane Society, the Cedar Bend Humane Society, and several other shelters across the state. A judge made it official Friday morning.

The change in custody allows the animal shelters to perform with medical procedures that they weren't able to before. These more invasive procedures includes spay and neutering, dental work, and tumor and cyst removal.

Cedar Valley Humane Society's Communication Director Jane Clarke says they hope to start these procedures next week.

The dogs are all at different levels of health, but Clarke says some of the healthiest animals at the Cedar Rapids facility may be ready for adoption as early as the last week of February.

The Sac County Attorney's Office says criminal charges are expected to be filed next week against Mary Broderson.
