See below, and then let me know if you are available to foster or help transport dogs. They will probably be released beginning Labor Day weekend. They may need additional
vetting so fostering might not begin until into September, but they need estimated numbers of how many we can handle ASAP.

There are 1,000 plus dogs that need placement and so far we know there are the following breeds:

Lots and lots of dacshunds - mini\'s included
King Charles Spaniels
English Toy Spaniels
Shih Tzu
Chinese Cresteds
Jack Russells

This bust is a collaborative effort (HSUS, Dept of Agriculture, Best Friends and others) and the miller has released the dogs. As you can imagine 1,000 + dogs is quite overwhelming

The greatest volume of dogs is Doxies - 2nd greatest volume is English Toys and the 3rd greatest volume is Cavaliers, so we are going to have our hands full, folks. I hope to have some idea of the exact counts, but I suspect we are talking 100s. There are also Yorkies, Chinese Cresteds, Maltese.

We probably will need help getting dogs from Parkersburg, WV this next weekend and getting them to vets, etc. We will definitely need fosters ready for large numbers of dogs.

If you have other rescue contact for these breeds, tell them to contact the Parkersburg Humane Society to offer help.
