URGENT: Surprise-ANOTHER LANCASTER HOARDER!! 100 + animals eating only BREAD and EACH OTHER. Nice dogs, cats, rabbits, fowl, tortoise!

Date: Sun, 14 Nov 2010

PLEASE WATCH VIDEO: If there are any solid rescues/rescuers that can step up and help take any dogs that would be amazing. The "caretaker" is willing to release all animals. There are 100+ animals living on this property, have been eating BREAD only.  Some dogs are turning to eating trash and a few are resorting to cannibalism as they've been so hungry. Animals need out ASAP before the snow comes, they say all the dogs CRY at night because it is so very cold. There is inadequate shelter, they are living in squalor.  I know everyone is very full and rescues have been burned with hoarding situations. If any rescues can step up either BEFORE they enter the shelter or AFTER they are in the shelter please do so. Animal control has been contacted.

  • Lancaster, CA
  • approx 75 dogs
  • none are spayed-neutered, many are pregnant
  • 2 big momma dogs with tiny puppies
  • living in squalor
  • dog-friendly, small dogs, large dogs and cats all roam together
  • most are very friendly with people
  • 10-15 kittens around 2-3 months and a few adult cats
  • 20-30 fowl-chicken, pigeons
  • 2 desert tortoises
  • dozens of rabbits
  • dogs have been "surviving" by eating only bread and tortillas-we took dog food to last a few days until animal control comes or rescues can assist
  • dogs are not enclosed, they are free-roaming in the middle of hills
  • many dogs have been attacked or eaten by coyotes when they roam to find food
  • 1 blind large breed dog, 2 small breed dogs with missing eyes, 1 dog with missing front foot

We were able to take out 4 adults, 3 are pregnant moms, 2 have only 1 eye from injuries and a puppy with malformed legs.

There are so many left and its too much for even a handful of rescues. Contact JessicaCliver@hotmail.com if you can help.

Thank you,
