Moultrie-Colquitt County Humane Society helped local law enforcement with numerous dogs from a hoarding situation, according to WALB.
What started as a 911 call to a home quickly turned into a seizure of 14 dogs. The Moultrie-Colquitt Humane Society responded to this call with the Colquitt County Sheriff’s Office. Both were able to work together to rescue the dogs.
“The reason why we closed today is because we kind of had all hands-on deck trying to get all 14 of the dogs that we took into custody today,” [Humane Society Executive Director Courtney] Azar said. “That way we can process them as far as medical, if they need to go to the vet or things like that.”
These dogs are now among the over 100 animals at the Shelter looking for a forever home.
“There are actually 102. Yesterday, we took in exactly nine dogs. And when we count those, the count goes back up to 102,” Azar said.
We are still working to learn what condition the dogs were in at the time of the seizure. But there is a way for the community to help. The shelter is asking for the public’s help through food donations
“On a weekly basis, we probably spend around, right now, without donations, about $400, $350-$400 just on food. So we’re asking for as much as we can, especially with the influx we’re having,” Azar said.
