A burning cross, a Smith county man beaten and shot by a family member, and in critical condition. We are told this is much more than a family feud, and outraged family members are calling it a "hate crime."
Twelve dogs were sent to
the Toledo Area Humane Society for a new start, to escape life-threatening
conditions in southeastern Ohio.
Some of the dogs from the
hoarding case are making progress: six of them have already been placed in
foster homes. Others are still under special care.
The Humane Society staff
has been working with the dogs to get them used to human interaction –
something they didn't have in their previous home. They are still scared when
someone approaches, and they are only used to being around other dogs.
"We've got staff members
who are going in on a daily basis, several times a day, and just sitting in
there with the dogs," explained Cyndi Condit. "Just spending time with them,
just being around them…getting them used to having people around."
Because of the extra dogs
at the Humane Society, shelves are running bare. They are asking for donations
of canned dog food, peanut butter, and blankets and towels – even if they are
used. Donations can be dropped off at their office in Maumee.
