Nine dogs rescued from homes near Ann Arbor


ANN ARBOR, Mich. (WLNS) – Nine dogs were rescued from two Ypsilanti Township homes.

Animal cruelty investigators discovered three boxer-mixes living at the home, which was condemned by Ypsilanti Township soon after due to the living conditions, officials said. Investigators searched a second recently-condemned home in the area and found six more mixed-breed dogs, they said.

“We are so grateful to the Good Samaritan who made this report and to all people who go out of their way to speak out for animals,” Tanya Hilgendorf, Humane Society of Huron Valley CEO, said.

The neglect of the dogs ranged from a lack of food and water to untreated injuries, officials said, stating that one white boxer-mix suffered several “large, oozing wounds.”

The findings of the investigation have been sent to the Washtenaw County Prosecutor’s Office for a review of animal cruelty charges, humane society officials said.

All the dogs are currently receiving veterinary treatment at the humane society, 3100 Cherry Hill Road in Superior Township, according to a report by our media partners at MLive.
