Latest Hoarding Case Brings Animals To Central Ohio


An Ohio family surrenders dozens of animals after getting help from Animal Planet's "Confessions: Animal Hoarding." Now the Ohio SPCA must find new homes for them.

Eleven goats, nine females and two males, are just some of the many pets confiscated Monday by the Ohio SPCA Board member Jennifer Graham told NBC 4 that producers fromAnimal Planet approached them a week ago for help. The family is set to appear in the show "Confessions: Animal Hoarding" sometime in the spring.

"There are a very good family trying to do the right thing for the animals. You just get a little overwhelmed when you have so many that you just can't keep up on a day-to-day basis," said Graham.

The hoarded animals were discovered on a property in Butler County. The SPCA couldn't give NBC 4 the family's name and address because of an agreement with Animal Planet. We did discover that it took fifteen SPCA volunteers all day to remove 11 goats, five cats, a pony, and four dogs. The family refused to hand over 16 goats, two horses, five dogs, two ducks and four cats. The rescued animals are living with volunteers in various counties including Union, Guersney, Fayette and Franklin..." More & video
