A shocking case of animal cruelty has 17 cats and dogs in need of a home. They're currently at the Central Vermont Humane Society (CVHS), which said it's in dire need of support from the community to take care of the new animals.
Police found the animals in raids of an East Montpelier, Vt. home during the last two weeks. Exactly where is not being released because the investigation is still ongoing.
Anne Ward of CVHS says the twelve dogs and five cats have numerous health problems which could cost upwards of $10,000 to treat.
"We really need quite a bit of support from the community in order to do that for these animals," said Ward.
Some supplies are trickling in already. On Sunday Maggie McGill, who has three dogs herself, brought blankets.
"It makes me feel really bad, it tugged at my heart strings, that's why I had to do that," said McGill.
She's not alone, temporary foster families have been found for most of the animals until the court decides ownership.
However, Ward says they're still in need of things such as towels and food. She also says cash donations would be very helpful.
