The dogs were rushed to Camino Pet Hospital in Irvine, California, where staffers examined the neglected dogs. “Catch and Treasure came to us with visibly shaken spirits and broken hearts,” Hedy Herold, rescue coordinator for the hospital, told The Dodo. “Treasure was so matted that she couldn't move without pain and she was snapping at our technicians who wanted to help her.”
The two huddled together, but had to be separated due to Catch’s cold that required he be put in isolation for treatment. After a few days, Treasure was ready to be bathed and spayed — and has since transformed into a happy, outgoing pup.
