The ASPCA rescued 33 poodles of varying ages from a single home in Queens yesterday. The poodles belonged to an elderly couple. The story makes it sound like they began with a reasonable number of dogs. But when the dogs began to multiply, the couple could no longer keep up with all of them. Hoarding can often be a problem, especially among the elderly.
Check out the story in the NY Post.
There is also a photo gallery that shows some of the dogs upon arrival at the ASPCA. I believe that is Trish McMillan, senior manager of the ASPCA shelter’s behavior department, in the first photo. How cute will all those little fluff balls once they are washed, groomed & fed?
