Officials Work To Find Homes For Animals Taken From Hoarder

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - The extreme cold claimed the lives of three dogs in Eaton County; their frozen bodies were left in a Charlotte Payless Shoes dumpster.

Sheriff's deputies rescued more than 25 other animals from a house in the wake of a hoarding incident and are now working to find them a new home.

Jo Miller says her heart goes out to the dogs taken because of hoarding.

"At least her tail's wagging now!" she says, looking on to a happy puppy from inside that home.

Miller saw Angel on the Capital Area Humane Society website and fell in love with her. She introduced her to her own dogs and couldn't wait to add one more to the family.

"I wanna give her a good life," she said.

"One of the cats went up for adoption right away, too," said Capital Area Humane Society President Julia Palmer. She says all of the confiscated animals went through extensive medical examinations for the investigation and rehabilitation. She says many had dental issues and are being treated for that now.

"Most of it looks like they probably didn't get routine care that they needed throughout their lives," said Palmer. But she says the good news is "when they get into a home, normal life situation, they thrive."

Miller and her family welcomed Angel into their home for a new life with her new name, Daisy.
