Angela Speed with the Wisconsin Humane Society has notified us that 18 dogs were surrendered this morning to authorities after Racine Police, CSO officers, City of Racine Health Department officials and personnel were called to a home on Racine’s northside for a welfare check and discovered a hoarding situation. All the dogs that were surrendered were Chihuahuas, with the exception of a Beagle. A mother dog and her 2 week old puppies which staff consider too fragile to transport will be held at the Wisconsin Humane Society-Racine Campus. The owners were cooperative and surrendered 18 dogs to officials. 17 Chihuahuas and 1 Beagle. The dogs are getting veterinary exams today and some will be transferred to our Ozaukee Campus this afternoon due to space limitations in Racine. The family was allowed to keep three of their dogs.
