A pair of dogs that terrorized small pets and wild ducks in DeLand in recent months are ready to be sent to new homes, probably through a rescue group, officials said this week.
The dogs, thought to be mother-and-son mixed-breeds, are being held at the City of DeLand’s Second Chance Kennel.
With these particular dogs, not everyone is in agreement about whether adoption is the best course of action.
Margaret Scribner, who saw her cat get killed by the dogs on North Clara Avenue, is one such person.
Another woman whose cat was killed by the dogs thinks they should be put down.
Second Chance staffers believe the dogs are worth saving.
Anyone interested in adopting the dogs should contact Animal Control Officer Thomas at 386-626-7454 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
