Dogs rescued from hoarding situation almost ready to adopt

Animal shelters across the southeast are stepping in to help more than 100 dogs rescued in Union County.

The dogs were seized from what shelter workers called a hoarding situation last week, and taken to the Union County Humane Society, where workers cleaned them up and gave them medical checks. They are hoping to get them ready for adoption.

"By the weekend we should be ready for that. We encourage you to come by. The animals are not on our webpage because we just haven't had time to get them all processed and photographed yet but by the weekend we should have some things going on and we welcome the public to come out and take a look," said Tammy Rouse, Executive Director of the Union County Humane Society.

Many other shelters are stepping up to help, offering to take the dogs to their facilities. Volunteers from Claiborne and Blount Counties will be taking some of the dogs, and shelters from as far away as Nashville and Raleigh have offered to take some of the dogs.

The Humane Society needs donations to help replenish the medical supplies and food it used caring for the dogs. You can learn more on their website.
