Animal Neglect Investigation Continues in Montmorency County, Shelter Receives Outpouring of Support

Posted: Updated:

An animal neglect investigation continues in Montmorency County, and 9&10 News is learning more about the nearly 40 dogs seized in the case.

Today, we uncovered that the dogs involved in the investigation were seized from a breeder who runs Jetspets Kennel.

The 37 dogs seized from a home in Hillman late last week are now at the Elk Country Animal Shelter in Atlanta.

The shelter has seen an incredible amount of support in recent days, with donations adding up to more than $2,800.

The money will be used for supplies needed to care for the dogs, and for medical expenses that come up.

The dogs are not up for adoption.

So far nobody's been arrested, though the sheriff's office tells 9&10 News they plan to turn a report over to the prosecutor in the coming days.

9&10's Christina Vecchioni and photojournalist Eric Davis have more details on the case.

If you're interested in donating to the shelter, just click on the link attached to this story.

There were also six horses seized as part of the investigation.

They've been temporarily placed at a farm.
