NEA Humane Society rescues hoarded dogs

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) -

The Northeast Arkansas Humane Society came to the rescue again.

They rescued dogs on from a hoarding case in Paragould.

This time, it was very severe and included 36 dogs.

According to the police report, a Paragould police officer responded to a disturbance call.

The officer smelt a foul odor coming from the back yard.

The officer asked the home owner if he could go see the animals.

That's when the officer found them all in a severe condition.

According to the report, Animal Control Officer Todd Waldrum evaluated the scene.

Waldrum contacted the NEA Humane Society to help rescue the dogs.

Director of the Humane Society Margaret Shepherd said this case was like no other.

The man in Randolph County fed his dogs,” Shepherd said. “These dogs were not fed on a regular basis, so therefore their nutrition was extremely poor.”

Shepherd said that some of the dogs were in such bad condition that they had to put them down, but they were able to save 12 of them.

According to the report, the home owner Evelyn Collier,69, was arrested on 4 counts of animal cruelty.

A court date has been set for Nov. 23 at 1:30 p.m.
