Dogs Rescued from Hoarding Situation - Help Now

Item # 55274

Help dogs recover from terrible hoarding situation.

On October 30, 2013, the Humane Society International/Canada rescued 80 dogs and puppies from a situation of severe neglect in northern Quebec. The rescued dogs included mostly large breeds such as shepherds and huskies. One owner had been hoarding these dogs on private land. The dogs have had little to no human contact their entire lives. As a result, specialist and animal experts will need to be hired to care for the animals on a regular basis and get them on the road to adoption.

All of the dogs were in very bad condition; they were emaciated and many have serious skin conditions. Because the dogs were in such bad shape, and it will take months to rehabilitate them, this will prove to be a costly rescue. The shelter is in need of an industrial scale washing machine and dryer, extra large transport cages and large enclosures, and maternity supplies such as heat lamps and whelping boxes for the three expecting mothers rescued who had been left out in the freezing cold with no food, water, or shelter.

You can help. Your donation helps provide these dogs and puppies the treatment, food, water, and specialized care they need so they can be adopted out into forever loving homes.
