Josephine County Animal Control officers said they rescued 13 malnourished dogs Wednesday from a business called Pawsitive K9 Solutions, at 783 S.E. Sixth St., in Grants Pass.

Deputies with the Josephine County Sheriff’s Office served a search warrant at the location Wednesday, and they found 13 canines at different levels of malnourishment, according to a news advisory issued Friday night by the Josephine County Sheriff’s Office.

Some of the dogs required immediate care from veterinarians, who helped after hours to see them in a timely manner, police said.

The living conditions of the animals revealed they had been neglected for some time, the advisory said. The canines were transported to the Josephine County Animal Shelter.

The owners of the business were not present when police arrived, but they have been identified, the advisory said.

As of Friday, the canines were doing well and were getting the care they need at the shelter. The shelter stated the dogs are on special and expensive prescription diets, and donations would be appreciated.

If you would like to help with their care and donate, the shelter asked for hoses, bleach, laundry detergent and nitrile exam gloves, but any donations are welcome.

This case will be forwarded to the Josephine County District Attorney’s Office for review, the advisory said.
