BAY COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

A group of animals were rescued from the home of a hoarder. Unfortunately, not all of the animals made it.

Maud and Mabel are two of the puppies who were rescued from the atrocious living condition just three weeks ago.

"It's a joy to see them today to know that they're happy and they're healthy," said Jeannie Nichols, president of the Humane Society of Bay County.

When Nichols first met the mastiff-mix puppies they were in rough shape. They were victims of a Bay County animal hoarder.

"When you have a house full of unvaccinated, unsterilized pets, dogs and cats. It's a disaster," Nichols said.

Nichols responded to the disaster. Six puppies and 18 kittens were rescued from the home. Five of the animals were so sick they had to be put down. The other animals had health issues of their own and were infested with fleas.

"All of them were actually in bad shape when we got them," said Stephanie Beiser, dog adoption coordinator.

After several vet visits the survivors have made a remarkable recovery.

It's actually been very great how fast they've come around," Beiser said.

Maud and Mabel are already lined up to be adopted. Some kittens are also awaiting their new home.

"We hope to place everyone before the Fourth of July," Nichols said.

Nichols said the animals deserved their independence and freedom.

"Seeing these guys being placed with families that are going to spoil them rotten, that's exactly why we do it," Beiser said.
