Dogs in Racine Hoarding Case Under Care of Wisconsin Human Society
Two dozen dogs from a hoarding case in Racine are at the Wisconsin Humane Society's three locations, where they're getting the care they need.
The criminal complaint says 33-year-old heather Jensen and her 63-year old boyfriend, Terry Bogard had 26 dogs in their home. Several were in cages that were too small and dog fur and mud or feces covered the walls. Two of the dogs were handed over to relatives, while the rest were taken to the Humane Society on Friday. The organization says the dogs have settled in comfortably.
"When dogs are coming from a really crowded environment like that, they can suffer from a variety of medical issues, they're behavior, they might be fearful. Less socialized than your typical dog, your family dog. Dogs from hoarding situations can come with a host of those sorts of issues," said Angela Speed with the Human Society.
The Humane Society says you cannot adopt any of the dogs at this time because of the investigation. But they are in need of treats and toys.
They welcome you to stop by.
