Standard-Examiner: 149 Malnourished Dogs Rescued from One Ogden Home - Update

An animal rescue back-breaker... exacerbated by the impending long holiday weekend

As we stand on the cusp of the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, we'll provide a quick heads up on an animal hoarding crisis which developed yesterday in Ogden.  The Standard has two stories on the topic, reporting that "animal rescue volunteers and the Weber Animal Shelter worked frantically Tuesday to take care of 149 dogs, most of a chihuahua mix, that were rescued from a private home beginning Monday night":
This situation would be an animal rescue back-breaker under any circumstance; however the difficulties are exacerbated by the impending long holiday weekend.

Contact Pack ‘N Pounce Animal Rescue or the Weber County Animal Shelter if you'd like to make a donation, or otherwise lend a helping hand.

Update 11/22/12 8:00 a.m.:  Ogden's own American Nutrition comes to the rescue:
