Sheriff provides update on animals seized in animal cruelty case

The Van Buren County Sheriff's Office says local businesses and residents have donated food and toys for the animals seized during the animal cruelty investigation. They also provided an update on the animals.

Sheriff Dale R. Gribler says over a dozen bags of puppy food, blankets, toys, and other supplies were donated from Pet Supplies Plus, Tractor Supply and local residents to help care for the animals.

The sheriff says because it is unknown how long the animals will be in the care of Van Buren County Animal Control, any donations are welcomed.

Three local vets and kennel staff are caring for the animals seized.

An adult dog is in serious condition and was taken to a local veterinary clinic for treatment.

Sheriff Gribler thanks everyone for their donations and their continued support for the animals in the care of Van Buren County Animal Control.

If you would like to provide assistance in any way, do so by dropping off items to the Van Buren County Sheriff’s Office at 205 S Kalamazoo Street, Paw Paw, MI 49079.
