More than 130 dogs saved from a hoarder in California two weeks ago need to be saved again but only rescue groups can save them now if theres a chance for them to be pets someday.

There would be no way the average individual could financially care for that many animals. And absolutely no way to give them the attention they need.
What may have started out as a good thing...went south.
When we went to her double wide the place was a mess. she would just throw the food on the floor (Bare plywood in places). I wish we could have taken more.
People scramble to get dogs adopted to make room for 130 more; and yet:

Follow that money, honey!
Unfortunately the preliminary report from our rescue team today is not good. The majority of them are or have become feral and will have to be destroyed.
