Number of Animals Rescued From Grand Traverse Co. Hoarding Situation Continues to Grow

The number of animals found in a Grand Traverse County hoarding situation continues to grow.

Investigators say 29 dogs and cats were rescued, and one didn’t survive.

We first told you about the house Michigan State Police described as “in deplorable condition” on Monday.

Since then, even more animals have been discovered.

The Cherryland Humane Society is filled with dogs that have been rescued from that house.

They have sheets up with beds and blankets inside to give them a safe place to hide because many of them are still scared and have to get used to an environment where people are actually caring for them.

The Grand Traverse County Animal Control supervisor said Wednesday morning they rescued two more dogs and there are several more animals in the house that they are working to get the paperwork for before they can rescue them.

The Cherryland Humane Society says they are overwhelmed with the support they have received.

They were already at capacity before these animals came in, but they really need your help so they can provide the best care for them.

If you’d like to donate some items they still need are:

  • Blankets
  • Grain free dog food
  • Dry and wet kitten food

Vets and the Cherryland Humane Society are actively working to make sure all the animals are healthy, both emotionally and physically.

None of the animals are up for adoption yet, but we will update you if or when that happens.
