Seven Great Danes rescued from alleged hoarder

Posted:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Minneapolis Animal Care and Control is helping find homes for seven Great Danes after seizing them from a hoarder's home.

Animal control agents recently discovered the seven huge dogs in the home, which is more than is allowed under city ordinance. The agency says the home was filthy, and that the dogs were not socialized or receiving humane care.

Agents convinced the homeowner to give up the dogs. Two puppies were adopted, and the remaining five dogs are being released to Great Dane Rescue of Minnesota and Wisconsin. That organization will care for and rehabilitate the dogs until they can be adopted.

Minneapolis Animal Care and Control says people should not take in more animals than they are able to care for, even if they are acting with good intentions.
