Animal rescue group in need of volunteers,donations

 HARDY, AR (KAIT)- Arkansas Angels for Animals is looking for more volunteers to help rescue nearly 60 dogs from a trailer in Hardy. The organization was contacted a few weeks ago about an animal hoarding situation after the homeowner was bitten by one of the dogs. 

"This is probably the worst one I've ever seen," said director, Angie Heringer. " There are 50 to 60 dogs living in a trailer with a lady.”

The resident has been court ordered to leave her home so now the dogs are on their own. Once they rescue the dogs, Heringer said they will need medical attention. 

"We had one that died already and the others are in serious condition," she said. "The ones we caught today are okay but they could be heart worm positive so you're talking 2 to $300 dollars a dog.”

The rescue group hopes other groups in the community will lend a helping hand. Arkansas Angels for Animals is looking for more volunteers to help complete their rescue. 

"Even if we have to do it ourselves and do it one at a time, they're all worth it, every one of them," Heringer told Region 8 News. 

The group has rescued 11 dogs but will return to Hardy on Monday for the rest of the dogs.  

 "If each rescue or each shelter or each vet would just take one, one is manageable," she said. 

If you are interested in volunteering or donating to Arkansas Angels for Animals, you can call 870-974-2911 or visit their Facebook page.
