As previously reported, more than 100 animals were removed from a particularly severe hoarding situation in Van Buren County, late last month, and now these dogs are getting the chance to find their "furrever home." Slowly, after being given a thorough exam by veterinarians, each animal has been sent off to various shelters throughout the area, seeing the overwhelming number of 108 dwindle to 6.

Adopting a pet is a huge decision, as you know, and animal lovers who hear a story like this are easily moved to add a new member to their family, but please, consider all the things that go in to the adoption and adaptation of a rescued animal.
