Humane Society, Belmont County Animal Rescue League Thanked for Help in Hoarding Case

Posted: Updated:

The Belmont County Sheriff presented awards on Thursday to the Humane Society of the United States and the Belmont County Animal Rescue League for their help in the recent animal hoarding case in the Bellaire area.

Sheriff Dave Lucas says they couldn't have solved the case without the phenomenal help of the groups. A tour of the temporary shelter showed dogs, cats, horses and goats that are vastly improved from their original malnourished and neglected conditions.

Special needs were addressed, and many of the animals are on their way to being adoptable.
