Breaking news: Hundreds of chinchillas rescued from southern California company
by Katerina Lorenzatos Makris ~
In a rescue operation that required eight hours and four teams of trained personnel, a local animal protection group removed more than 400 chinchillas from a north San Diego county business yesterday.
San Diego Humane Society reports that it responded to a request from PETA [People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals] to rescue the 420 animals from a business in Vista, one of the cities under the humane society’s animal services contract.
SD Humane will house and care for the animals on its three San Diego campuses while evaluating each one’s health and behavior in preparation for adoption.
