Sad…this is truly appalling…
A Pennsylvania home was raided by police and officers found a truly disturbing sight.
Dog wardens with state police found over 200 Chihuahuas hoarded into the home, and many of the dogs were sick or dead.
The Chihuahuas were evacuated to the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center in Harrisburg and will be transferred to various shelters.
Vets will evaluate and treat the dogs at the shelters.
Animal hoarding is cruel and vile. We just hope these dogs find happy homes and justice is served.
Very sad…and VERY appalling!
Dozens and dozens of animals are recovering at Ohio animal shelter after suffering from the horrors of a hoarder's home.
Thirty-four dogs, six cats, 200 birds, roughly 50 quails and several bunnies were jammed packed inside Dolores Buckley's Parma residence.
The dogs were covered in feces and fleas, and one was so dirty, she had to be SHAVED!
On top of this, Buckley was a puppy mill hoarder, impregnating her pets to try and sell for profit.
Thankfully, the house has been deemed unfit for humans and pets, and a judge is currently deciding what to do with Buckley and her pets.
We have a suggestion: Put them up for adoption!

An Ohio man was found dead and partially eaten by his starving dogs.
The man owned FIFTY of them!
Police wouldn't reveal the man's name, but they believed he had been dead for weeks.
Many of the dogs had to be put down or starved to death, while eight were taken to a shelter.
Reports say that police repeatedly asked the man if he needed help with the dogs, but he consistently turned them away.
We wonder what happened to the guy…
Tough way to go though…
Oh wow. So terrible…
In a new book, Courtney Comes Clean, writer Maer Roshan spent more than a year interviewing and communicating with Courtney Love to write his book.
He also researched Courtney's daughter Frances Bean Cobain, including looking over several pages of the sealed deposition papers that were drafted when Frances filed a restraining order against Courtney back in 2009.
And now we know why a restraining order was requested.
The book describes how Frances alleged that Courtney was responsible for the death of her pets, a cat and a dog, due to her hoarding and her drugging.
In a sworn statement, Frances said that her cat died after getting entangled in piles of fabrics, boxes of paperwork and trash that Courtney had accumulated over the years.
She also said that her dog died after swallowing some of Courtney's pills.
Frances also said she was worried that her mom would start a fire in the house because she often fell asleep smoking a cigarette.
And according to her, Courtney lives on just pills and cigs. Frances said:
"She basically exists now on…Xanax, Adderall, Sonata and Abilify, sugar and cigarettes. She rarely eats."
Love says that she's "not a junkie anymore," but that she only takes "legally prescribed medications."
Mmm-hmm. Those can still do some major damage.
Poor Frances. She's gone through so much at such a young age and never had an actual adult role model to look up to.
We're amazed at how normal she's become.
Courtney needs help. Major, major help.

Police in rural Indiana rescued 82 dogs from a woman's home.
She may now be facing animal cruelty charges.
Animal control officers and several deputies used four trucks to take 55 of the 82 dogs to a shelter to be evaluated by vets.
Then the next day they came back for the remaining 27 dogs.
Neighbors had originally alerted authorities because with all the dogs, and all the doggy doo doo, they feared the waste might seep into their water supply.
The woman said she takes care of her dogs and feeds them daily.
Sounds like a hoarder to us.
We'll just have to wait until the police report comes out to find out if any charges are being filed.
