Dogs Rescued from Life of Hell on Abandoned Property



The AHS was contacted by Orange Animal Control Officer Rudy Giordano after a building inspector discovered a "house of horrors" -- full of dogs. The house was allegedly abandoned. Around each corner, there was another dog or group.

There were a total of 12 dogs found on the property in huts and cages. ACO Giordano contacted the AHS and ambulances were immediately dispatched to the scene. The dogs appeared neglected with older scars and they were extremely thin with poor body scores.

Our Animal Control Officers approached each needy pathetic dog and removed them from the heavy chains or the confines of their cages.

Although a few owners have visited the AHS for some of the dogs, there are several that do not appear to be "owned". Those owners who want to claim some of the dogs have been turned away as the investigation continues.

The Res-Q Fund is an important and essential supplement to the cost of giving these dogs excellent care. If you would like to help take the strain off helping these dozen dogs, please make a donation to our Res-Q Fund.

These needy dogs are "tough-looking" dogs that may cause some potential adopters concern. Each dog is given a temperament evaluation and would do great as an only dog in the home. These dogs can express just how much they have to offer.

For more information, call 973-824-7080 or e-mail us.

The house has been condemned as an unsafe structure.

UPDATE: 6/26/14 - This matter has been adjudicated in court - two men pleaded guilty to neglect of the above dogs. Read the full story.

UPDATE: 7/7/14 - AHS fights to prevent return of dogs to neglectful owners.
