Crews find, remove 22 dogs from Rossville mobile home

By Callie Starnes
ROSSVILLE, WALKER COUNTY, GA (WRCB) – It's one of the worst cases of animal hoarding Walker County officials have seen.
Officers removed nearly two dozen dogs from a Rossville home Thursday. The floors and furniture in the home were caked in feces.
"It's bad in there," said Curtis Patterson, with Walker County Animal Control, "some of the feces in there is two feet thick."
Armed with hazmat suits and oxygen masks, Walker County Animal Control officers dug through animal waste to rescue several dogs from a Fairlane Oaks mobile home.
"They've brought out 11 animals so far," said Angela Cordell, who was watching from her window with her family.
By late afternoon, 22 Chihuahuas were rescued.
Piles of trash, furniture, and food made it difficult for officers to know for sure all the dogs were out...."  More & video
