Dec 11, 2011: Some of Rescued Dogs Have to Be Euthanized
by Paulo Salazar
It's a classic case of dog hoarding that led to the rescue of more than a 100 dogs that were living in less than suitable conditions.
Tuesday, Noxubee County's Elaine Jewell had more than 100 dogs seized from her non-profit organization called Animal Rescue Foundation. She claims she took the animals in to help but quickly got overwhelmed.
Authorities from the Humane Society of the United States say as many as 200 animals could have been living on the property. Sadly Saturday, 14 of those rescues had to be euthanized because the were in such bad shape from medical or behavioral needs or both, according to Lydia Sattler, Mississippi director. Some have undergone surgery and others are being treated for diseases and various injuries.
Jewell doesn't face any charges, however she will be subjected to monthly monitoring for future animal hoarding..." Link
