Honor Animal Rescue Assists with Placement of Hoarded Dogs
When the dog hoarding tragedy was recently uncovered at a Venice home, Honor Animal Rescue stepped forward to help the Sarasota County Animal Control team with rescue efforts. The shelter took 46 of the dogs, and Dari Oglesby reports that most are doing well.
“We were able to foster all of the dogs. About half of them at this point have made it back into the shelter and have been adopted out, and some of those have found forever homes in their foster home families,” she said. “About a dozen will need to return here to be spayed and neutered before they can be adopted. Some are still scared, but we’re working to socialize them so they can be adopted.”
Dari added that between 10 percent and 15 percent of the dogs tested positive for heartworms, so they will need additional treatment and care.
“We would like to thank the community, Petco, UNFI, the groomers and everyone else who stepped forward to help or donate in this rescue mission,” she said. “We couldn’t have done it without you.” Honor Animal Rescue is located at 4951 Lorraine Road in Bradenton. Please visit honoranimalrescue.org
