More than 20 canine have been taken from a Centertown residence and now Animal Control wants help whereas it really works to discover houses.
“We are overwhelmed and need help,” stated Warren County Animal Control and Adoption Center director Sherri Bradley.
Over a two-day timeframe Wednesday and Thursday, workers picked up 25 canine, 4 cats and one rabbit because the proprietor surrendered the animals.
“Yes, there was one rabbit,” stated Bradley. “The dogs are of all ages, from 6-month-old puppies to dogs 13-14 years old, and all kinds of breeds. It’s a hodgepodge.”
The animals should not spayed or neutered, and their proprietor grew to become overwhelmed with the rising numbers, says Bradley.
“He called us because he didn’t know what else to do. It’s a large number of animals, too much for one person to take care of by themselves. He was very appreciative of our help. It took us two days, two very hot days, but we managed to get them all to the shelter.”
Animal hoarding is protecting a lot of animals whereas failing to present ample care and failing to acknowledge the struggling of the animals due to lack of care.
“Some of the animals are in need of medical attention,” stated Bradley. “All will be up for adoption, but only after we make sure they are in good shape and suitable for new homes. Until then, we need assistance from the public. We need tarps to cover the outdoor kennels. We need dog food donations and monetary donations to help cover vet expenses. Volunteers would be appreciated to help care for this many animals.”
Donations may be dropped off at Warren County Animal Control and Adoption Center, 169 Paws Trail. Ross & Company, owned by Warren County Commissioner Christy Ross, is a donation website at 120 E. Main Street.
