Twenty-nine Chihuahuas and a Rottweiler rescued by Grovehill Animal Shelter
A woman in her 80s had gathered the dogs over the years keeping them well-fed and sheltered but without any veterinary care.
The shelter was contacted about this situation and according with Lynda Hill, founder of Grovehill Animal Shelter, quoted by BBC, "many of them have dreadful teeth and none of them are neutered. Some of their coats are a hairy, rotten mess. Some of the dogs that had been ill, she wouldn't have realised until she would have found them dead in the house. She couldn't possibly have known they were ill when she'd more than 30 dogs living with her. She knew herself it was out of control, she knew it was unacceptable".
Now the shelter is facing a vet’s bill of about £4,000 to get the dogs healthy again. Though the dogs are not yet used to human contact, the shelter will try re-home at least 24 dogs.
