The City of Perris will hold a raffle to adopt the two dogs seized by authorities from a couple accused of neglecting their 13 adult and minor children.

The City wants the female Maltese-mix dogs, each about a year old, to be adopted together.

The animals, one white and one black, appear healthy and friendly and are leash-trained, said Senior Animal Control Officer Christina Avila.

Avila said the adoption raffle will begin Friday, Jan. 19 and conclude when the dogs are adopted on Feb. 5.

Interested residents should contact the City of Perris between Jan. 19-26, with their name, address, contact number and email. They may submit information to

Following the initial period, animal control officers will make contact and inspect the residences of all those who have submitted the required information to determine whether those homes are suitable for the dogs. The City is limiting the raffle to Perris residents so Animal Control Services officers can inspect prospective homes to ensure they are adequate to accommodate the dogs.

Those deemed acceptable will be placed into the raffle and one will be drawn at random.

The dogs will be spayed and immunized prior to being placed in a new home.
