MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Ohio (WDTN) – At least 44 dogs were rescued from a Delaware County home with deplorable conditions. Officials say the dogs were in the care of a hoarder.
Some of the dogs suffered some serious skin injuries. 19 dogs were transported to the Montgomery County Animal Resource Center (ARC), where many are recouping. And 7 dogs are up for adoption.
“They’re always sad situations. Hoarding is something that happens where the person may have started out to do good things and then get overwhelmed,” said ARC manager Mick Sagester.
Most of the dogs are miniature Pinscher mixes, 15-25 pounds and between 1 to 2-year-olds. Officials say they are great for families and ready for a new home.
The dogs are considered a “special guest” of the center and are up for adoption at $20 and/or additional donations to the center.
