Dogs found in hoarding case now ready for adoption

NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – Some of the dogs rescued from a hoarding situation in Hertford County will soon have new families.

10 On Your Side first told you about the hoarding situation last month. 60 Australian Shepherd dogs, including 13 puppies,  were rescued from a property along Pine Tops Road.

Eleven of the dogs rescued went to the Norfolk SPCA. People have adopted at least three of them already, and eight more are now ready for adoption.

“When they first arrived, they weren’t in terrible condition, but they certainly needed some attention,” said Criss Bruneman of the Norfolk SPCA. “They needed some socialization, they were shy. Since they’ve been here, they’ve really come out of their shells. They’re playing, they’re learning to trust people. They just seem really happy to be here.”

Some of the dogs still need foster care, because they’re recovering from medical problems. One is deaf, and another is deaf and blind.

The SPCA will evaluate anyone interested in adopting them to find a good fit. Call (757) 622-3319 to speak with an SPCA representative.
