Angels of Assisi responded to another hoarding case in Darlington, South Carolina. It seems that Angels of Assisi can’t go for a solid two weeks without being called upon to rescue animals in need.

Most recently, the rescue of 23 puppies in Texas turned out to be a monumental effort. After being found in a dangerously hot truck, 28 French bulldog puppies were brought to a veterinarian in Texarkana, Texas. Sadly, five of the puppies were lost due to the horrific conditions they endured before being rescued. Once released by the court, Chicago French Bulldog Rescue stepped up to take the surviving dogs. To protect the pups--who were still in delicate condition--a private plane was sent to transport them to Chicago. SPCA of Texas sent a veterinarian to Texarkana to provide exams, health certificates and an escort to the airport. It was an amazing effort by all and a unique case that is still ongoing.
