21 chihuahuas rescued from hoarding situation in NH

BEDFORD — A hoarding situation in Croydon lead a shelter in Bedford to take in 21 chihuahuas.

With the help of local law enforcement the dogs were transported to the Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire - some of the dogs were as young as 3-weeks-old and have neurological problems. One of the dogs is even blind.

"Quite a few of them we would consider special needs dogs so it's going to take that special home, that's willing to take a dog that is wobbly, that is blind, that maybe has an amputation," said Monica Zulauf, President, CEO of NH Animal Rescue League.

The shelter said it's going to take some time to assess all of the dogs, therefore adoption for these dogs will not be right away.

"We will do what they need medically and socially to get them ready for adoption," said Zulauf.

Visit Animal Rescue League of NH to see animals that are up for adoption and ways to help the rescue organization.
