Seen here are nineteen - just half - of the thirty-eight Dachshunds rescued from a Texarkana, Arkansas home last week by Jeff Tarpley Rescue out of Cedar Park, Texas. Mr. Tarpley, who runs his own rescue group, got a call from a man in his 60's who said he and his wife had too many dogs. This is what he saw when he opened the door to their home.
The Associated Press reports:
All of the dogs have names, but Tarpley says he suspects the couple made up the names on the spot when the rescue group arrived.
The couple told Tarpley that they got two dogs 10 years ago but never had them spayed or neutered — and this was the result.
These guys could be poster-dogs for a spay and neuter campaign. Ten of the dogs were taken to Diamond Dachshund Rescue of Texas, while others were sent to a Texarkana kennel or placed in foster homes.
The number of Dachshunds increased from thirty eight the very next day after the rescue when newborn puppies made their appearance into this world.
Donations to help these guys are being accepted at ChipIn.
