Rockbridge SPCA gets help in dog hoarding recovery

By  | 

ROCKBRIDGE COUNTY (WDBJ7) The Rockbridge SPCA is working on an animal hoarding case.

They’ve been working to rescue around 60 dogs from an area property, far more than any single shelter could handle. So they put out the call, and a range other animal shelters and care groups pitched in to help.

“We've had an overwhelming response from other rescues, shelters. Our volunteers have come in to drive animals to Northern Virginia and other areas," says Tara Rodi, the SPCA Executive Director. "So we're very grateful that we've had all the support and aid from the other shelters and rescues."

The SPCA says the dogs’ owner has been cooperating with authorities as he understands that the situation got out of hand.
