Dogs dropped off at shelter ready for adoption

Two dogs at the center of a lengthy cruelty investigation have healed and are ready to be adopted.

Sisters Vanna and Lily were found tied to the gate of the Humane Society of Southern Arizona on May 12, malnourished and covered in feces, bite marks and scars. Vanna’s right ear was completely missing, according to HSSA officials. A cruelty report was filed for the 3-year-old Pit-bull mixes.

The Pima County Sheriff’s Department has taken over the investigation. Anyone with information on how the dogs got to this condition is urged to call 911 or 88-CRIME.

The shelter said Vanna is on pain medications and antibiotics to ensure she makes a full recovery.
