25 dachshunds were rescued from an elderly woman's home, and will be available for adoption as early as next Monday at the Okefenokee Humane Society in Waycross, Georgia. Apparently her late husband bred the dachshunds, and she kept them as pets after he died. Excerpt from Jacksonville.com:
"Most of them had mange, but overall they were in good shape and well fed," Lori Hartman, humane society director, told the Times-Union.
"She loves them," she said. "But it was a lot for her to keep [up] with. She just got overwhelmed."
Hartman said the woman isn't being charged because she voluntarily surrendered the dogs. Under the supervision of social workers, she has cleaned up her home. The humane society allowed her to keep two of the dogs. It is working with her to get them spayed and neutered, Hartman said.
