Hoarding Case Article

After firefighters extinguished a fire at a home in South Fulton county, LifeLine Animal Project's Fulton County Animal Services Officers were called in to rescue over 90 dogs from what appears to be a hoarding situation. The owner has surrendered the dogs, but the situation is still under investigation. The dogs are safe and will receive medical care and placement assessments over the next few days, and may go to rescue or be available for adoption based on those assessments. Here's how you can help:
