Officials say the girl, who has been identified as 3-year-old Aliphare, climbed over a neighbor’s fence into their backyard in the 9400 block of Broken Bow Court.

She is in serious but stable condition.

The Humane Society says the dogs will not be taken into custody and charges are not likely to be filed since the dogs were properly enclosed on the property.

The dogs will be under a 10-day quarantine, meaning they can’t leave the house unless they’re leashed.

The Humane Society says the dogs were up to date on all vaccinations.

The investigation is ongoing.

UPDATE: (3/22/17): The family of Aliphare has started a GoFundMe page to help raise money for her medical expenses.

Roger Ronas, Aliphare’s grandfather, told FOX21 Wednesday Aliphare was scalped by the dogs and suffered numerous bites all over her body, adding that she will require several skin grafts and be permanently disfigured. He says she will require years of treatments and therapy.

Ronas say Aliphare is currently in stable but serious condition at Denver Children’s Hospital. She is awake and alert and her first surgery is scheduled for next Tuesday.
