24 Chihuahuas Rescued from NC Hoarder



24 Chihuahuas were flown to Popcorn Park from a hoarding situation in Gates, NC. They arrived today courtesy of Pilots for Paws. Carla Johnson of Chihuahua Rescue and Transport, Inc. became aware of the chihuahuas in need and began making calls late last month. One of the calls came into Associated Humane Societies' Popcorn Park and arrangements started to fall into place for saving them.

The plans really came together when Pilot Matthew Kiener from Pilots for Paws offered his services. They all arrived today at Robert Miller Air Park in Berkeley Twp around 3 pm.

Staff started moving the Chihuahuas from the plane to our awaiting vans for the 10 minute trip back to Popcorn Park

Staff and Chihuahuas lined up at our vet's door for the chihuahuas' exams.

And then once at the shelter, they were brought to our clinic and given health exams, and any vaccines that may have been needed before going into their specially set up kennels full of comforters.

Update: October 16 ...

Our 24 chihuahuas have had a heck of a time over the past few days. These little guys left the only home they've ever known last Thursday, hopped a plane from N.C. to N.J. and were then transported to our facility at Popcorn Park. They've also had lots of cameras on them, people looking at them and handling them, and probably more commotion going on then they've ever experienced. Lots of these little boys and girls are still quite shaken up and scared and need a lot of time to calm down, settle in, and get to trust us. They are coming along, as you can see in this picture, and we already have about 8 or 9 that are perfectly fine and ready for new homes! But the others need peace and quiet for now so if you come in to visit, please be respectful of their situation and let them be until we have had time to gain their trust. They are all coming around nicely and will be happy little tail waggers real soon but in the meantime, they need to adjust to this change slowly and quietly. Thank you.
