Chihuahuas rescued from an Issaquah hoarder last fall need homes, say the Regional Animal Services of King County.
Regional Animal Services of King County (RASKC) and the Seattle Animal Shelter are teaming up to find homes for a number of the Chihuahuas, according to a press release by the animal service agency.
Investigators found the dogs living in deplorable conditions in a home in Issaquah, according to the press release.
According to the Issaquah Press, 62 Chihuahuas and Japanese Chins were found at the Issaquah home of Margaret Ann Hamilton, and another 38 dogs were found in her home in Burien. Hamilton faces animal cruelty charges, according to that article.
The dogs have been in RASKC custody since then, and were living in foster homes pending the outcome of the case, the RASKC’s press release stated.
“We’re happy that these dogs have a second chance at a good life,” said RASKC operations manager Glynis Frederiksen in a prepared statement. “Thanks to our hard-working staff and wonderful foster families, we’ve been able to nurse them back to health. The previous owner has agreed to release them so that we can find them new forever homes.”
