ST. LOUIS -- Twenty-eight dogs are getting some much needed attention Friday night after being rescued from an abandoned trailer.
The Humane Society of Missouri Animal Cruelty Task Force found them on the border of Newton and Lawrence counties in Southwest Missouri.
Investigators say because the dogs have been living in filthy conditions, most of them have severe hair loss, making it difficult to nail down their exact breeds.
They also have skin conditions, parasites, and eye, ear and respiratory infections.
The humane society has a list of items they're asking for to be donated, such as string cheese, frozen chicken strips, toys and busy bones. To make an online donation, click on this link.
