BTAA says abandoned dogs' health improving

Better Together Animal Alliance estimates that "Sugar," one of 18 husky-type dogs abandoned in the region, had less than a week to live when she was found. While Sugar is getting better, she has a long way to go, BTAA officials said in a press release Friday. The other eight dogs connected to the case being cared for at BTAA have made great strides since being brought to the shelter. The dogs, found abandoned over the past few weeks in the Spirit Lake, Blanchard and Athol areas, are at the center of an animal neglect case by the Bonner County Sheriff's Office. A suspect has been identified and BCSO officials said they expect to seek criminal charges after the investigation is completed.
