Missouri Humane Society Leads Morning Raid Near Senath

MARCH 14, 2006 - Posted at 7:43 a.m. CST

 

SENATH, MO - Acting on a call from a local animal welfare organization and working in cooperation with the Dunklin County Sheriff's Department, the Humane Society of Missouri is currently in the process of rescuing more than 100 dogs from a property outside of Senath this morning.

The Humane Society believes there are more than 100 dogs of a variety of breeds on the property.  Many of the animals are reportedly suffering from mange; bloody, crusty sores; and significant hair loss.  A Humane Society spokesman says the dogs have had limited human contact and it is believed the animals have had little veterinary care.  After the rescue team rounds up the dogs and loads them onto their vehicles, they will be taken to the Humane Society of Missouri headquarters in St. Louis for treatment.  The animals will remain in Humane Society custody until a disposition hearing is scheduled in Dunklin County.

In 2001, the Humane Society rescued more than 170 dogs from the same property.  Subsequently, the owner agreed to leave the property and move into a situation in which this was less likely to occur.  Apparently, that did not happen.  "It's heartbreaking and frustrating that so many animals are again in such jeopardy," said Debbie Hill of the Humane Society.  "This appears to be a classic hoarding case in which an owner may be trying to do a good thing, but the situation has gotten out of control with many more animals than can be cared for by one person."

K8 News has a crew at the scene of this morning's rescue operation and will have more information as it becomes available.
