21 malnourished dogs rescued in ontario

February 5, 2020, Ontario, CA – Twenty one extremely malnourished and neglected dogs were found in an Ontario home on the 3800 block of Antelope Creek. Multiple complaints from Good Samaritans prompted the investigation of the residence and Inland Valley Humane Society & SPCA (IVHS) officials were assisted by Ontario PD to search the property; the animal owner signed over all animals on site.

IVHS was contacted about several dogs on a property in Ontario living in deplorable conditions. Neighbors complained that the smell was perceptible from across the street. After serving a search warrant, IVHS & Ontario PD investigated the property to find 21 dogs varying in age from approximately 1 to 13 years old predominantly of the Labrador Retriever and Spaniel breeds. The dogs were malnourished and eating small tree branches to sustain themselves, as they had no food or clean water available to them.

Each dog will be individually assessed by our veterinary staff and receive the immediate care he or she needs. Because of the owner’s failure to care for the animals and their traumatic living conditions, they will be available for adoption post-assessment and after receiving medical care from our staff.





All rescued dogs will be spayed/neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, dewormed and receive flea and tick treatment. The available dogs will need additional care once adopted and adopters will be briefed on each dog’s condition and what they require for proper care.

The Inland Valley Humane Society and S.P.C.A. is a private, non-profit animal welfare organization dedicated to providing protection, shelter and medical care to abandoned and injured animals of our community. For more information, contact IVHS at or by phone at 909-623-9777.
