We are aware of the arrest of Steffen Baldwin of Save Them Dog Training in California. Austin Pets Alive! is among the many organizations who have worked with Steffen over the past several years and we have seen him save many dogs who would otherwise not have had a chance. We cannot comment on his arrest or the reported experiences of other groups or individuals, but we have sent a few dogs to his ranch to receive help through sanctuary, training or adoption opportunities that we could not provide here at APA!.
We take this very seriously. All we can do is act to support the dogs. We have been in communication with the people at his ranch and are actively trying to determine the best way to help the dogs living there. We don't have any other information at this time but if you want to help please let us know at [email protected].
