35 Dogs Rescued from Hoarder Home Need to be Rehabbed

AUBURN-

Thirty-five dogs finally have the care they need, and a second chance at a good life.

Shana Laursen took in the nearly three dozen dogs from a Southern California hoarding case on Tuesday.  It was the largest one-day intake for her Auburn rescue, and there have been some expected challenges.  One of the dogs had a small litter of puppies, and Laursen believes as many as four more dogs could be pregnant.

“So, it could be any day if it’s a small litter,” said Laursen.

Most of the dogs are 1 to 2 years old, and Laursen’s hope is to spend more one-on-one time with the dogs to help speed the rehabilitation process and, in turn, get them ready for adoption ore quickly.  But she’ll need help.

“We need other rescues to step up.  Take a couple of dogs so we can get down to a reasonable number for us to spend time with.”
