BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

The Birmingham Jefferson Count Animal Control (BJCAC) shared some good news about two dogs left stranded in their yard after their elderly owner died.

Neighbors fed and watered the dogs while police and animal control officers worked through legalities to get the dogs out of the yard and into a shelter.

Animal control says the dogs are not heartworm positive, in good health and eating well. They say the larger, younger dog will be adopted. The smaller dog who had a large mass on one of her mammary glands, will go to a rescue organization because of her age and medical condition.

"Pretty much we're just kind of sitting here, waiting for whatever decision is going to be made by Birmingham Police so we can either get them into an adoption program or send them to a rescue," vet tech Tammy Hallman said.

If you are interested in adopting one of the dogs, please contact BJCAC at 205-591-6522 or visit them online at http://www.bjcanimalcontrol.com/.
