The Michigan Humane Society (MHS) has found loving homes for animals that were living in poor conditions in an animal hoarding situation. Twelve dogs and five cats were removed from the home by the local animal control officers and brought to MHS to receive medical care and to eventually be placed into loving homes.
The responding animal control officer, whose city requested anonymity so as not to affect an ongoing investigation, described the house and the area where the animals were being kept as in deplorable condition and one of the worst cases she had ever seen.
“These animals were living in crates filled with their own waste, with little to no time outside or interaction with humans,” said the animal control officer. “They all had significant care needs, both medically and mentally, and it took significant resources and time to help them be happy and healthy.”
