Update: We are happy to report that out of the 41 dogs we removed in this humane investigations case, 35 have been adopted, two are in AHS foster homes getting ready for adoption, and four were placed with rescue partners.
Early Wednesday morning our Critical Response Team traveled to Carlton County, Minnesota, to aid dozens of Chihuahuas living in overcrowded and unsanitary conditions. More than 40 Chihuahua mixes, including tiny, unweaned puppies and pregnant mothers, were removed from the single-family home and brought to Animal Humane Society. Each one will receive a full medical evaluation, critical vaccinations and treatments, behavioral care, and the love they desperately deserve.
The Chihuahuas will become available for adoption after they've received necessary care and treatment. Please watch our Special Projects page for information about animals from this case (and other cruelty cases) as they become available for adoption.
AHS is able to investigate animal cruelty and neglect and pull animals from dangerous environments thanks to the generous support of donors. Your gift allows us to continue this important work and will help dogs from this case. Give now.
