Missouri hoarder surrenders 71 dogs

by Chelsey Brooks

A Missouri woman is surrendering 71 dogs to the Humane Society of Missouri.

On Monday the Humane Society of Missouri Animal Cruelty Task Force rescued the dogs from a property in Saline County at the request of the producers of an Animal Planet's series.
During taping of Confessions: Animal Hoarding, this past week, the owner realized she could no longer properly care for the dogs and agreed to surrender them.
Twenty-five of the dogs, including a litter of puppies, were living in the owner's home. About 60 other dogs were living in rundown, open air pens on a separate near-by property.
