BOCA RATON, FL (WFLX) - The Tri-County Humane Society in Boca Raton says they rescued 55 dogs who were living in deplorable conditions in Hialeah.
We're told that they were found in a warehouse living with bite wounds and health problems.
They say someone was trying to save more than 200 dogs from euthanasia and didn't realize they needed help.
Caretakers at the Humane Society wonder whether the economy is leaving dog owners to surrender them without being careful, and that too much pressure is being put on smaller rescues who don't realize they don't have the resources.
"This lady had a really big heart to be doing what she was doing, but there are certain ways you need to run an animal shelter for the health and benefit of the animals as a whole," said Janice Olson of the Tri-County Humane Society.
The Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League in West Palm Beach says they've taken in double the numbers of animals this year.
"Our adoptions are up. The number of animals coming into the shelter is increasing this year as opposed to last year. But we do see an increase in the number of animals we can place into new homes," said executive director Rich Anderson.
The Tri-County Humane Society says they plan to have nearly all the animals they rescued this week ready to be adopted within ten days.
