Mange-ridden dog removed from Vineland home containing more than 50 animals

Anthony Bellano

A Vineland woman who had a dog confiscated from her Foster Avenue home this week has a history of issues hoarding animals.

The Cumberland County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals rescued a golden Labrador retriever from the home of Brenda Rhodes, 59, Tuesday.

Rhodes was discovered to have over 50 animals in the home, including chickens, cats, dogs, goats and pigs, according to a report aired on NBC 10.

“One dog was taken because he was found to be in such poor condition,” SPCA Executive Director Bev Greco said. “We took him and we have obtained pet care for him.”
Greco went on to say that multiple animals were found to be kept in unsanitary conditions.

Rhodes was served with two summonses, one for failure to care for a pet and one for unsanitary conditions..."
