Yikes! This story is so sad. Twenty two small dogs were found living in a mid-sized station wagon with a woman who''d recently been evicted & seems to be suffering from dementia.

This is so sad for the lady and the dogs. I hope she doesn''t get charged, especially if she is suffering from dementia...

I feel so bad for both the lady and all of those dogs. I hope she gets the help she needs and those little fluffs find good, loving homes.

That is unbelieveably sad. My heart breaks for that woman. I hope she has a family!

Not to deviate from the story at hand... but is it just more or does your avitar looks like one of the poochies in the vehicle....

These reports are always sad - for the animals and the owner, the rescue services and any neighbours.

I used to feel angry at such owners for neglecting or mistreating their pets but I think in many situations it has started from nothing but the best of intentions.

Too many animals need loving homes; the problem is that any one owner can only have x number of animals in their home (or car???).

I would love to take in all the animals who need a home. Really love to. But at 3 cats and 2 dogs already I realise that you have to set limits. There comes a point where in taking in so many animals you become neglectful of all of them. Too sad.

Oh that poor woman... and those poor doggies. At least since they''ve been in the news the odds are excellent that they''ll get good homes. So sad though.
 

Definitely. Maybe

Oh my goodness. This is so heartbreaking for both the animals AND the woman. I can''t even imagine. The sad this is I am sure she completely loves those dogs or she would have just left them stranded somewhere. It is so sad. I really hope family or someone can step in and help her out. I really feel for this woman.

Oh my!! Those poor puppies
I will take them. They''ll have considerably more room even in my 500sf apartment.

Okay, maybe I should only take 3 or 4.

They look like papillons too, my favorite kind of doggie!

Yes, you''re right! They are mostly Papillons & my sweet girlie is also a Pap.

Musey -- I *know* how you feel. I want them all too! Especially that wee slicked back one who seems to be staring directly at me from my computer screen.

One eyewitness account says that at night the woman would lie down and the dogs would completely cover her -- like a fur blanket & that''s the only way they all survived a few cold nights.


I''m happy that they appear in pretty good condition -- vs. what I''ve seen in some rescues. There was food & water in the car. Their coats look healthy. What an awful turn of events. But, hey, at least its not a car full of premature invitro *babies*

I''ve never seen anything like it (thank goodness)! So glad those concerned witnesses stepped up & called authorities. Unbelievable!

how tragic that she lost her home and then had to live with all those pups in that car. the dogs seem to be healthy from the pictures. please keep posting any more information on this. i would like to know that the dogs are getting adopted and to know what was wrong with the woman.

Animal hoarding is a mental illness, and it often does start with the very best of intentions - to take care of animals who wouldn''t otherwise have a home - there are multiple websites devoted to the subject, such as here and here.

It is really incredibly sad as the animals oftentimes end up being the victims in all of this - when it gets out of hand like that they often fail to have the animals checked up on by a vet and/or they don''t get them spayed or neutered, which propagates the problem (literally).

I think the only good news here is they should be able to find homes for all of these pups - small, cute dogs usually go from rescue pretty quickly, and the publicity will help too.

The SPCA website said there is a hearing today to determine custody of them. If SPCA is awarded it then they will be evaluated for adoption, etc.

I think BF is lucky we don''t live in Texas, because I would be at that shelter the moment they were available. They all look so loving and I''d love to give some a good home. Is it said that a part of me hopes the woman gets to keep at least some of them?

On another note, I actually have a friend who''s grandma takes in ANY stray dog or cat. At one point in time she was up to 50 animals in her home. The human society had to come and take some away, but she continues to take in more. It is so sad. My friend has never been in her grandmas house because of it. Hopefully this isn''t the case with the woman and she is just on hard times.
