Nearly 40 dogs were rescued from a South Florida home, officials from an animal clinic said.
The dogs were inside a home in Boynton Beach on Florida’s east coast, WPEC reported. The animal hoarding case was reported to Furry Friends Animal Clinic, a nonprofit organization in Jupiter.
Pat Deshong, the president of the organization, said the owner was a woman in her 80s who was unable to care for the animals anymore, the television station reported.
“She probably had a kind heart and just took the dogs into their homes,” Deshong told WPEC. “There’s no way she can properly give attention to 39 dogs at 87-years-old.”
