Many of the 109 animals rescued from a hoarding situation in Bemidji, Minn. last month are working toward a new home. Animal Humane Society reached out to the public and its rescue partners for assistance. So far, 44 dogs and the two cats from the case have been adopted into new homes.
Forty additional dogs needed extra help. Animal Humane Society behavior staff knew that these dogs would do better in an environment outside a shelter, one where they could get the peaceful one-on-one time they need to learn how to be good pets -- that is where Animal Humane Society's rescue partners come in. Ten different local animal rescue groups and another animal shelter responded to Animal Humane Society's calls for assistance and are now caring for those dogs.
