Marion County dogs are closer to a permanent home after living in locked up trailer


Last week it was reported that multiple dogs were locked in a trailer on a Marion County property, leaving concerned neighbors with lots of questions. Officers with Marion County Animal Control and the Fairmont Police Department, along with workers from the Marion County Humane Society have worked to make sure that the dogs will soon be put up for adoption to find a new home.

On Tuesday, January 15, 12 News spoke to neighbors on Stoney Road  in Fairmont who were left with questions about the condition of animals that were left in a trailer for multiple weeks in the cold. Three out of the four dogs were safely taken into care by the animal control and showed signs of healthy living and energy after the owner kindly signed over three of them, with the other dog being taken care of by the owner’s relative.

The humane society confirmed that this happy ending just shows what happens when the community comes together.

“When the community and our Marion County Animal Control and our Humane Society are able to come together and provide a good and happy ending for animals, it always makes people feel good. It makes the public feel good. It makes our county feel good, and it shows that we really are doing what we are meant to do here,” said Frankie Spatafore, employee of Marion County Humane Society.

Once all evaluations are given for the three dogs, they will be up for adoption, to help them receive a permanent adoption home.
