More Than A Dozen Dogs Rescued From Squalid Conditions In Camper

Published: September 30, 2022 at 12:27 PM Author: Penny Eims



Bowling Green, KY – More than a dozen dogs have been rescued from unimaginable conditions inside of a dilapidated camper in Bowling Green. On Thursday, the Bowling Green/Warren County Humane Society shared images of the deplorable conditions the dogs had been forced to live in, writing:

What is more sad than seeing a dog in a shelter kennel? Seeing them in a home where they would rather be absolutely ANYWHERE else. When “home” is a nightmare, the word “shelter” takes on a whole new meaning. We recently assisted Animal Control officers with a situation where 14+ dogs were living (partially with their owner) in a travel camper. The conditions were beyond belief and the dogs desperately needed to be rescued ASAP.

All of the dogs were surrendered by their owner and taken to the animal shelter for care. One dog was in such poor condition that she could not be saved. The animal welfare agency said:

she did spend her last bit of time with us and we made sure that she was spoiled rotten and made to feel so loved that maybe, just maybe, she could forget her sad past for a while at the end of her journey.

The rescued dogs are suffering from a variety of maladies, including fleas, skin infections, malnutrition and more. The shelter is hoping to raise funds to help get them the care that they need.

The shelter has addressed the dogs’ prior owner, writing:

Although there is NO excuse for allowing this situation to happen, the point of this post is NOT to dwell on the owner. They are being dealt with according to the law and we hope they are given the tools to create a healthier environment for themselves while not being given the responsibility of any more lives.

The owner may be a SICKO but he or she is also a freaking HOARDER! Punish him or her and NEVER ALLOW TO HAVE ANIMALS AGAIN! FILTHY CAMPER SO DOESN’T LOOK LIKE THIS PERSON IS ABLE TO CARE FOR HIMSELF/HERSELF!

Hoarding is a psychological disorder. The person means well and loves their dogs or cats but the numbers grow beyond their ability to control. They need help. They need to be free of caring for animals. They need a fresh start and meds for probably an OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) diagnosis. Mental illness is a real thing millions cope with across
the nation.

Not sure how anyone can look at that skinny dog everyday and not feel some compassion for it. Certainly a hoarding situation and thankfully someone alerted the authorities before all the others suffered the same fate.

Absolutely shameful and pathetic. So disgusted with some humans. So sad. Thank you for helping all the dogs. Bless their hearts. Certainly life will improve for the survivors.

How can someone watch an animal starving to death? Very sad situation. The person is obviously mentally challenged. Should never be allowed a pet again.

It’s a shame that it’s the innocent animals that pay the price of these sick, deranged pathetic people. Poor dog in picture was just laying there wasting away to nothing! How horrible and insane of a person do watch and do this. Shame on this rotten person and my prayers to the innocent souls who suffered and died a horrible death.
