53 Dogs Rescued from Pine County Owner

More than 50 dogs were rescued from a home in Pine County after the homeowner said he was unable to care for them or shelter them. 

Zach Nugent with the Animal Humane Society out of Golden Valley said there were 51 adult dogs and two puppies, all hound mixes, rescued from the property. 

Horses and other farm animals were also removed from the property. 

One batch of dogs was removed from the home on October 30.  The second group was surrendered and brought to the Animal Humane Society on November 5. 

The dogs lacked adequate care and shelter, and were mostly tied up outside in wet, filthy conditions. 

Nugent said some of the dogs had scrapes and minor wounds, possibly from fighting. 

The animals had little to no human interaction. 

Staff worked on the social behaviors of the dogs to get them ready for adoption. 

Ten of the dogs have already been adopted and another 22 are ready and waiting to be adopted. 

The humane society has been working with the animals on their social behavior.  They are also offering behavioral support, including a free 30-minute training session to anyone who adopts one of these dogs.
