Wayside Waifs rescues dogs in hoarding case

KCMO animal shelter Wayside Waifs announced on Monday that the shelter is caring for more than two dozen dogs rescued from an animal hoarder in Savannah, Mo.
The shelter's animal rescue team responded at the request of the Andrew County Sheriff's Department. Most of the animals were living outside in dirty sheds and outbuildings. They had little access to food and clean water. Their interaction with people was also limited. Many of these dogs showed signs of illness, including symptoms of mange.
The Wayside team had to make two trips to the property because of the number of animals involved. Last week, the team removed 18 dogs from the property. Monday, the seven remaining dogs were rescued.
Wayside Waifs says the dogs will be available for adoption after evaluations and medical treatment..."  More
