News - Shippensburg, PA - The Shippensburg News-Chronicle - Franklin Co. dog hoarder shut down, 58 rare dogs removed
Hammond, who has been “wonderfully cooperative,” according to Bucher, will keep 10 of the animals while the other 58 have been seized and are currently being turned over to two different rescue organizations.
“It was just a hoarding situation, one of those things where he thought he could handle it,” said Bucher. “He started out with four dogs and it just got out of hand because they were not neutered or spayed.”
The 10 animals Hammond is allowed to keep must be spayed and neutered, Bucher said. Anyone who has 25 or fewer dogs is not required to possess a state kennel license.
