It’s been a rough two weeks for the Ohio SPCA. During that time, they have taken in animals from three hoarding cases. One of those cases involved the rescue of 30 dogs and puppies and one kitten from an elderly man in Scioto County. Dead dogs were found on the property, and those still alive were found in deplorable conditions. Scroll down to read updates, and to see the faces of just some of the dogs that were rescued.

On September 30, 2014, the Ohio SPCA removed dogs and puppies from a hoarding situation in Scioto County. Dogs were found dead on the property, and those that were alive were emaciated and ill. Sadly, many of the dogs rescued were infected with Parvo and needed further medical care.
… But not out of the woods yet
Sixteen of the dogs were hospitalized. Thirteen of them went to receive care at MedVet – Columbus and three went to Health and Harmony Animal Hospital in Grandview Heights, Ohio.

The Ohio SPCA reports that little PeeWee is just 10 to 12-weeks-old. He is emaciated and has no hair. Pee Wee is just one of the puppies with Parvo.
After three hoarding cases in two weeks, the Ohio SPCA’s emergency veterinary funds have been depleted.
The Ohio SPCA said in a Facebook post:
We must be prepared to help the next ones in need
Not all survived
The Ohio SPCA posted on their Facebook page that this little baby has turned the corner. Yet the fight is not over yet.
Of the sixteen that were hospitalized, not all made it. Currently thirteen of them have turned the corner, the Ohio SPCA reports. Two are still fighting, and sadly, one has lost the battle.
An update on Ohio SPCA’s Facebook page says:
Midge is still not eating on her own, but the vomiting and diarrhea have stopped. Her blood work is now normal. Keep fighting little one, you can win this battle!

Jeb is one of the sixteen rescued dogs that had to be hospitalized. When found, Jeb was hairless, crusty with mange, and his eyes were infected. He was so thin, the Ohio SPCA referred to Jeb as:
a skeleton covered in skin
Jeb is doing much better, and this sweet little fighter has even won the battle against Parvo.
Ohio SPCA notes all the dogs will be available for adoption once they are well.
