Dozens of animals, including 21 German shepherds, have been rescued from squalor at a home in Clermont County, Ohio. As reported by Fox 19 Now, the apparent hoarding situation is one of the worst ever seen by individuals with All Dogs Come From Heaven, a rescue group which took in many of the neglected shepherds.
On January 4, the rescue group stated:
We partnered with Clermont Animal CARE Humane Society and both teams worked into the night, removing as many of the 50+ animals as we could last night. Both teams and our vet All Creatures Animal Hospital Dr. Dan will be on site today, bringing out more animals. We will also have our horse people there to assess and remove the horses if possible.
Many/most of these animals are emaciated and highly in need of extensive medical care.
Meaghan Colville, a program director with the Clermont Animal CARE Humane Society, tells Fox 19 that the couple who owns the animals was unable to keep up with the care required to keep them healthy and clean. So far, no charges have been made against the unidentified couple.
Video taken inside of the couple’s home reveals the horrific conditions that the dogs were existing in.
