State Investigator Mike Little says he was contacted by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals last week about a self-proclaimed shelter whose owner became “overwhelmed” by over 200 dogs in her care.
Little says there are no criminal charges pending against the woman as there was no intentional abuse. The woman was allowed to keep twelve of her personal dogs.
The rescued dogs do not suffer from any serious injuries. “So far there’s some skinny, some respiratory issues, some eye issues, some skin issues. Just kinda typical stuff for what we see when you have such a high number of dogs at one location,” Little says.
Once the dogs are treated, they will be available for adoption at the Humane Society on Macklind Avenue.
