The Humane Educational Society started Wednesday in Marion County assessing 15 dogs rescued from freezing temperatures Tuesday night. 

HES was alerted to a hoarding case that involved 15 dogs  tied out and/or crated on a property in Marion County with literally no protection from the bitter elements Tuesday afternoon.  The Marion County Disaster Animal Response Team and Marion Animal Resource Connection removed the dogs from the property and the dogs spent the night at the Sequatchie Firehall warm and dry.  

HES staff and volunteers worked to vaccinate and assess the dogs. Many are heavily matted and must be shaved and all are in need of a good grooming.  "Mandy" a  terrier mix was terribly matted and had to be completely shaved. Volunteers will be back at the shelter tomorrow to spend time with the new residents and to help with the other dogs that need grooming.  

A few of the dogs have injures in need of veterinarian attention and most of the dogs have tested positive for heartworms and will need to be treated.
