7 more dogs rescued from Pittsfield property

Paws Along The River Humane Society seized another seven dogs after serving two more warrants this week in Pittsfield Township.

This is the same property that 39 dogs were rescued from on Nov. 8, according to Paws Along the River Humane Officer Karen Kolos.

“We knew there were some dogs left on the property two weeks ago but were unable to catch them,” she said. “The owner agreed to help us after they kept hiding under the home and it got too dark to see where they were outside. He was also unable to catch them, which left us no alternative but to go back and rescue them. These dogs were living in a ‘pack’ situation and were not used to people, collars, or leashes, which made our rescue efforts extremely difficult.”

A total of 46 dogs have been removed from two properties in Pittsfield Township. Erie Humane Officers assisted along with Warren-based State Police.

Charges have not been announced as a result of either rescue.

“We want to thank the community for their response for daily help and donations during this difficult time,” said Kolos. “We would ask for continued assistance with cleaning, laundry, and doing dishes, allowing the staff to attend to the animals in our care.”
