South Wood Humane Society in Wisconsin Rapids received 74 dogs as the result of a hoarding situation in which they worked with the owner to surrender them to ensure they receive the care they need and homes that can properly provide for them.
Elmbrook Humane Society and Wisconsin Humane Society worked together to accept and transport some of the dogs back to their respective organizations. Ten dogs have been admitted to Elmbrook Humane Society. The dogs are in need of medical examinations and care to address any of the medical needs that are found as a result. All are in need of spay and neuter and basic medical care (vaccinations, deworming, heartworm testing,etc.).“
Heather Gehrke, Executive Director of Elmbrook Humane Society said “We are grateful we are able to take care of anything these 10 dogs need and are able to do so in large part due to the support received from our community.” As the dogs are just arriving and are in the process of settling in and soon being evaluated, applications are not being accepted currently.
