Rescued animals thrive after bust

Memaw was one of 27 dogs removed from a Clay County home in June. Her condition has improved greatly after two months of medical treatment with the Shaw Pit Bull Rescue. (Submitted photos)

In late June, five horses, 23 pit bulls and four other dogs were rescued in one of the largest animal hoarding cases in Clay County. Officials asked Shaw Pit Bull Rescue in Columbus to be ready to take in four puppies. The agency made room for the new arrivals, however that number soon ballooned into 18 dogs. Two were pregnant and gave birth to 13 puppies total. The rescue took them all in and the dogs are receiving the care they need to regain their health.
