PREVIOUS STORY: A group of 11 dogs, part of 46 canines rescued from a central Arkansas hoarder, are being brought to the Humane Educational Society in Chattanooga Tuesday.
Both HES and the Humane Society of the United States are helping in the rescue.
HES says the animals were seized from a home in Redfield, AR and were forced to live in crates without food and water.
The dogs were living in filthy conditions, and suffering from mange and heart worms.
Kim Alboum, director of the Emergency Placement Partners program for The Humane Society of the United States, said:
“Our Emergency Placement Partners are a crucial element in The HSUS’ national mission to rescue animals from cruelty situations. Our partners in Florida and Tennessee are ready and waiting to get these pups started on the next part of their journey.”
Once the dogs arrive in Chattanooga, they will be examined and cared for before becoming available for adoption.
