Another animal hoarding case revealed. There were 100 Chihuahuas found in a local home in Grand Cane, Louisiana. Animal Control Officer Harold Renfro wasn’t prepared to handle the sheer volume of dogs, so he reached out to Guardians of Rescue, a nationwide animal rescue organization. Guardians of Rescue will be transporting 11 Chihuahuas and three terrier mixes to Save-A-Pet Animal Rescue, located in Port Jefferson Station, New York.
Local publicity of the finding alerted adopters to the DeSoto Animal Shelter. Of 28 of the dogs that were taken to the shelter, only 11 Chihuahuas have yet to be adopted. These 11 dogs will be spayed/neutered, receive special care, and socialization.
"The Chihuahuas left are extremely nervous, fearful and do not show well to the public; we have to treat this situation delicately,” said Dori Scofield, vice president of Guardians of Rescue. "The shelter is full, and these are the dogs that needed us most. It was not necessary for us to take the easily adoptable ones. We help the underdogs of the world."
The cost for health certificates and transportation totals over $1,000. Guardians of Rescue is asking the community to make donations, if possible, to help assist them in getting the dogs to safe and loving homes that they all deserve.
Donations to help Operation Chihuahua can be sent to Guardians of Rescue via their website or may be mailed to Guardians of Rescue at 34 E. Main Street, Suite 303, Smithtown, NY 11787.
