The Central California SPCA acted fast and came through big time when a stray dog was found tangled up in a painful mix of barb wire and a portion of a volleyball net.

On Tuesday at 11AM a CCSPCA Animal Control Officer responded to a call about a stray dog in the area of Nielsen and Marks.

Someone reported that a stray had wandered into their garage and was tangled in a net.  But it turned out to be far worse. The male Shepard mix was found to be wrapped in the volleyball net along with a piece of barb wire.   The dog was rushed to the CCSPCA Campus.

The barb wire hadn’t punctured the Shepard mixes skin, but it was wrapped around the animal. The spay and neuter team was able to safely remove the net and the wire from the dog’s body.  While they were doing that they removed four foxtails that were lodged near his eye and nose.

The CCSPCA now wants to re-unite the dog with it’s owner.    If you recognize him please visit the CCSPCA Stray Animal Center daily between 8 AM and 5 PM.  If you’d like to help with the costs please donate to the organizations wellness fund by calling (559) 233-7722, extension #110.
