Pomona students call Inland Valley Humane Society & SPCA to rescue dog in flood channel

Tuesday, October 10, 2017, Pomona, CA – Students at Ganesha High School in Pomona spotted a terrified terrier mix in a flood channel and contacted the Inland Valley Humane Society & S.P.C.A. to help rescue the stray that had been there more than two weeks, according to a news release from the non-profit.

The Humane Society & S.P.C.A. reported Thursday, Oct. 12, that humane officers had responded and after several hours managed to gain the dog’s trust to rescue him, according to an email from shelter veterinarian Dr. Karen Lee.

Now the dog, given the name Benny, needs food to nurture his emaciated body and medical care to help him heal, along with love and attention from staff. Benny is believed to be about 7 years old.

The Humane Society & S.P.C.A. is seeking donations from the public to assist with the dog’s care.

The flood control channel where Benny was living is south of the high school campus, off Fairplex Drive.
