Rescued dog from Watsonville animal abuse case in search of forever home

In February, a bust on a cockfighting ring in Watsonville led to the rescue of 175 birds and 12 dogs by the Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter. The shelter reported that the older dogs were discovered in the property’s back with unclean water, while Elsa, one of the rescued dogs, was tied up in an isolated area. 

Elsa was found with skin issues and has since been receiving treatment, including medicated baths, flea and tick medication, and antibiotics.
