Humane society seizes 45 dogs, 20 cats in two animal hoarding cases

Animal cruelty investigators from the Humane Society of Huron Valley seized 45 dogs and 20 cats in two separate hoarding cases recently in Washtenaw County.

One of 45 dogs seized in a recent animal hoarding case that is now up for adoption at the Humane Society of Huron Valley.

In both cases, the animals had been neglected. The dogs and cats are in fairly good health, according to HSHV staff.

Two cats and 45 dogs were taken from a Milan-area residence last week, said Matt Schaecher, cruelty and rescue supervisor for HSHV.

The owner of the animals, an elderly woman, had health issues and could no longer live on her own.

Schaecher said the woman surrendered the animals to the humane society and all 45 dogs and two cats from the case will soon be up for adoption. HSHV will not be pursuing cruelty charges in the case.

The dogs were well-fed, though some were found to have heart worm, Schaecher said.
