Finnish Lapphund Rescue in Sonoma County. California

On Tuesday, January 21st, staff of Sonoma Humane Society got a call requesting assistance to remove 35 Finnish Lapphund dogs in Reddings, CA as the owner is losing her home. However, the staff and volunteers discovered that there are double of that number in the property living in unthinkable conditions. The dogs vary in ages from nursing moms with puppies to seniors, were housed in small, stacked crates. Their fur were matted and caked with urine and feces. From all appearances, they have had little exposure to human contact other than that of their care-taker.


At the latest there are over 61 Finnish Lapphunds that ranges for 15 y/o to puppies and growing as some are pregnant and have given birth or due to whelp in the coming days and weeks. The Finnish Lapphund Club of America is coordinating with the Sonoma Humane Society and the Tibetian Mastiff Rescue to make sure all the rescued lappies get the proper care they need at the moment. There is already an overwhelming respond from the public for support and donation. Currently the immediate need is monetary donation to offset the medical costs as the rescue society continue to care for these wonderful dogs over the coming weeks.
