With bellies still swollen from a lack of food, 35 dogs are on their way to recovery after being rescued Monday.
The dogs are currently housed at the Alaska’s Extended Life Animal Sanctuary in Nikiski. On Monday night two Soldotna residents along with Tim Colbath and Sue Whipp, who run the non-profit sanctuary, and volunteers from the Domestic Animal Protection League of the Kenai Peninsula rescued the dogs on Knight Drive just outside of Soldotna city limits.
“They look so much better,” Whipp said on Wednesday. The dogs are becoming more active with proper nourishment.
