Bloomington Animal Shelter overflowing after 68 dogs are confiscated from hoarder

The Bloomington Animal Shelter is seeking pet supplies and possible short-term foster homes for dozens of dogs rescued from a 700 square foot home. 

On March 17, the police confiscated 68 dogs from a house on the west side of Bloomington due to multiple reports of unauthorized breeding and hoarding of dogs. The dogs are reported to be adults and puppies of the Carolina Dog breed. The shelter has dropped all fees on already adoptable dogs older than 6 months, not including those confiscated from the home. 

The shelter has received support from the Monroe County Humane Association, Brown County Humane Society, Pets Alive, Duke Energy, and other multiple businesses in Bloomington. Recent Facebook posts from the shelter thanked those who have donated and explained that they now have more than enough supplies and money to take care of the animals. Many of these animals are still adoptable and are looking for a loving home.
