Funds, Homes Needed To Help Relocate 100+ Dogs From Pike Co. Home


By Sarah Cantey

 More than 100 dogs are turned over to two Pike County animal rescuers and now they need your help finding homes and funds for the animals. 

Tiffany Howington and Jacqueline Meeks are working to find fosters and rescues after a property owner in Pike County is overwhelmed by their amount of animals. 
What's been referred to as a hoarding case, Tiffany and Jacqueline say is anything but what you may be picturing. They say the animals are in good condition and were well taken care and that the number of animals simply became too much to handle. 
Meeks said, "They are actually very good people, they've been working with us, they've been complying with what we as. But they are overwhelmed and they need our help and that is what we are doing."
The property owner is facing no charges because officials say this is anything but an animal cruelty case. 
Howington said, "As for being fed, yes, socialized, yes they are great dogs they are sweet and that's not what you typically find at an animal hoarders house they are usually scared and terrified of people but these dogs aren't they are very loving sweet dogs." 
Tiffany and Jacqueline have all the dogs vaccinated and spayed or neutered before adopting them out- a hefty price tag with more than 100 dogs.

They are holding a fundraiser Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. At Mama Goldberg's in downtown Troy. Ten percent of proceeds will go towards the rescue effort. They will also have dogs for adoption on the square.
