Don't be a Hoarder!

I love having a house full of pets just as much as the next guy but I know my limit...do you? I've seen this story way to many times in the news. People taking in one or two animals out of compassion and keeping taking in more and more to the point where they end up creating a worse environment for the animals than the one they were rescued from. 

Take a look at the story below...

More than 50 dogs and cats rescued from North Bergen home

By Paul Milo | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com 

NORTH BERGEN — Dozens of animals were retrieved from an unheated Hillcrest Place home Wednesday and placed in no-kill shelters throughout the area, a township spokesman said in a statement.

A total of 49 dogs and five cats were removed from the home by police, health and animal control officials as well as volunteers following complaints from neighbors about conditions at the small red-brick house. Seventeen of the dogs were puppies and three of the cats were kittens, the township said. One dog and 11 cats were also found dead.

Anyone interesting in adopting one of the rescued animals can call the North Bergen Health Department at 201-392-2085.

The home's tenant, Juan Perez, failed to show up for a court appearance on charges of failing to license pets and a warrant has been issued for his arrest. Perez, whose whereabouts were not immediately known, will likely be issued dozens of summonses for animal cruelty issued  by the township's animal cruelty investigator, Geoffrey Santini, the township also said.

Staff and volunteers from Bergen County Protect and Humane, Ramapo Husky House, St. Hubert's and other facilities aided in Wednesday's rescues.
