Default 39 PB GSD's in DURHAM NY

WNYT.com - German Shepherds seized in Greene County available for adoption



The Columbia-Greene Humane Society and the Greene County Sheriff's Office removed 39 German Shepherd dogs and one cat from homes at 596 Morrison Road and 221 Hervey-Sunside Road.
The dogs were found living in such horrible conditions that investigators say the smell made their eyes water.
If you are interested in adopting the dogs, call the shelter at (518) 828-6044.
Dawn Verdeschi, 44, has been charged with animal cruelty.
A second suspect, Christopher Cella, 55, of Durham is wanted for questioning.
Anyone who knows of Cella’s whereabouts is asked to call Greene County Sheriff’s Department at (518) 943-3300.

The shelter should verify OWNERSHIP! before placing any of those dogs. There may be some co-ownerships/dogs there on breeding contracts...they are not checking microchip information either, after several requests to do so. I don't understand why they are adopting them out so quickly....most shelters will at least have a screening process with a wait period before selling dogs.
There is one person in the Netherlands that has a male stud dog in this mess....she cannot even get anyone to help her get her dog back!

This is really weird because _I don't know a lot about situations like this but I thought usually they had to wait until the court case was done before placing the dogs

I agree. Why are they adopting them out so soon? Has any testing or vet care been provided? How would they know if these dogs are even suitable for adoption?

How can it be that the stud dog's owner can't get her dog back?! What BS is that?!

I believe that is in the process- however... This post is not to stir the pot.... if there are animals to be placed- folks that (might ) be interested need to be fully prepared to act fast- There is only so much ANY shelter can handle- be the ACO a GSD breeder or not. The conditions were deplorable- once ownership/ contract issues are settled, these dogs (bottom line) need to move to foster/ adoption fast- There is pony so much space that ANY shelter can afford.
People need to KNOW about it in order to ACT upon it.

Crazy!! Ugh E-mails should be screened to find out if owners are trying to get their dogs back. I watched the news footage on this. Deplorable!!!

The dogs were surrendered which means the shelter can adopt out, send to rescue or euthanize (NOT that they are!!) as needed. The issue seems to be that she surrendered dogs that she didn't own.

Not all shelters have the resources to vet and test dogs. I would assume they had a quick look over, no obvious temperament issues, and ok'd to adopt out.
