Two of the 15 dogs taken from a hoarding situation in Eaton County last week are now available for adoption.
The Capital Area Humane Society says the Australian Cattle mixed breeds had been living chained up outdoors, with minimal bedding in their dog houses. They are a little shy, due to their lack of socialization, but have been medically treated and are ready for adoption. If you're interested in adopting one or both of these dogs, call the Capital Area Humane Society at (517) 626-6060.
Some of the other dogs are still getting medical care, and two dogs have been sent to rescue operations for their special needs. The shelter hopes to eventually adopt out the cats and rabbits also taken from the Brookfield Township home, once they've been treated and spayed or neutered.
The Eaton County Sheriff's Office tells News 10 Animal Control is finishing its investigation and should have its report to the prosecutor any day now. Last week, an elderly woman confessed to owning the three dogs found dead in a dumpster behind the Payless Shoe Store in Charlotte, and that she hired someone to dispose of those animals.
We'll will continue to follow this story and let you know if and when charges are filed in the case.
