JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Humane Society has taken in 12 of 19 dogs rescued from a hoarding case investigated by the city's Animal Care and Protective Services.
The other seven dogs were placed with other rescue organizations, according to a release from JHS. The owner surrendered the animals to ACPS.
The 12 dogs that JHS took into its care include two Chihuahuas, two Yorkshire terriers, two poodles and six Maltese. None of these animals have been neutered/spayed, all need dental work and eight of them have heartworms.
"It will take at least two weeks and thousands of dollars of treatment before these dogs are ready for adoption," said Dr. Jennifer Broadhurst, JHS shelter medical director, in a release. "We hope we can find foster families to gives these poor little dogs love and attention while we provide them with the veterinary treatment they desperately need."
