Dogs Rescued From Hoarding Situation In Cumberland County

Cumberland County Animal Control, Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department and the Humane Society of the United Stated led the effort yesterday to rescue 33+ dogs from a suspect hoarding case in Cumberland County.  A.A.R.F. was called late Monday asking for assistance with this case.  Jennifer Farley and Linda Randall were on the scene for most of the day yesterday, assisting with socializing dogs and rescuing 7 dogs into the A.A.R.F. program.  The worst case, “Windy”, is a white pit bull mix who is severely underweight, malnourished, covered in gashes, and has a serious bacterial skin infection. Windy was thought to be 19 years old as stated by the property owners.  Upon further investigation by Dr. Barker with Copeland Veterinary Hospital, also on the scene, it was determined that Windy is just 2 years young!   Jackie Baker with Wags and Whiskers Spay Neuter Advocates is fostering her at the present time.  Others rescued are Bucky, a male beagle hound mix; Daisy Dukes, a female chihuahua; Roxy, a female brindle feist mix; Piper, a female black and white boxer mix; Xorro, a male black and tan chihuahua; and Buck, a male deer chihuahua. 

We are in need of financial support to pay for the needed veterinary care for these animals.  Please visit www.aarf-tn.com/donate to make your tax deductible donations to assist these animals in getting the care that they need.
