When Critter Mama Rescue Inc received a phone call about five Lhasa apsis dogs, nothing could have prepared them for what they were about to witness.

The dogs’ owners asked to meet the groups founder, Robin Roberts, and several other volunteers in a parking lot as he said his landlord did not know about the dogs.

The volunteers could not believe their eyes.

Roberts runs the group that helps people who can no longer care for their beloved pets. When he first heard about the dogs, he said: “The concept of having five adoptable, well cared for Lhasas sounded fine.”

But Roberts soon found out these animals had not been cared for at all.

Roberts and volunteer Connie watched the dogs be removed from the van one by one.
