Another Lakewood Rescue - Connie - Looking Like A Brand New Dog

Another one of our new dogs from the Lakewood hoarding case is like a whole new dog today. This young lady, who we have named Connie, could not be happier tonight, all snuggled up on her clean bed with her clean, new body.

Connie, above, was one of more than 30 dogs that were removed from a residence in Lakewood this past Thursday. Our AHS Popcorn Park management and staff, along with many other animal welfare organizations, suited up in hazmat gear to enter the home where these poor creatures were living in the most hideous, horrid conditions. Read the full story here.

We groomed Nanni and Jolene on Friday, and just those two girls took us all day. As you can see, Connie, left, was quite a project too, but well worth the work when after her lengthy grooming, she stood on the green grass in the sun, clean and taken care of for the first time in a very long time. Connie, like all of these dogs, is very scared and shy, but just loves people. She was an absolute angel for her grooming and was so tolerant of us. Connie needed to be shaved down to the skin to remove the many years of feces that imprisoned her little body. This is not an easy process, and takes several hours. Connie is like a whole new girl today and will need time to get used to her new, safe life. She and her friends are not available for adoption just yet, as they will need some time to settle down and recuperate from the horrifying ordeal that they endured in their previous "home".

We can't thank you all enough for your support of this wonderful group of dogs. We are relying heavily on our Res-Q Fund these days, especially in light of the fact that we have so many special needs animals right now. If you can contribute to our Res-Q Fund, please make a donation and help out.

Thank you all again, and please stay tuned for more video footage and updates on our beautiful new pups.
