FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - Animal welfare advocates have seized 135 animals from a Fresno no-kill shelter after they were found to have been severely neglected.

The Fresno Bee reports (https://bit.ly/2bBDVXl ) that the Central California Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals took 132 dogs and three cats from Noah’s Friends Animal Sanctuary.

CCSPCA spokesman Walter Salvari says many of the dogs were found to be malnourished and infested with parasites. The CCSPCA has recommended charges to the Fresno County District Attorney’s office.

Veterinary staff is currently examining the animals. They will receive medical treatment if needed, but the CCSPCA is asking for donations to help pay for the high number of animals coming to the shelter.
