Hall Co. Animal Control rescues 59 dogs from North Hall home

Hall County Animal Control officers have rescued 59 dogs from deplorable conditions at a home in north Hall County.

Animal Control officers discovered the animals at 8468 Romey Savage Road Tuesday.

“Our officers responded to the mobile home, obtained a search warrant and found an exorbitant number of dogs inside the home,” Assistant Hall County Administrator Marty Nix said. “Some had medical issues that were not being addressed; there were sanitation issues in the home, rabies tag violations and issues with air quality.”

Dr. Meghan Seabolt, veterinarian for the Hall County Animal Shelter, said all of the dogs needed immediate medical attention for excessive flea bites, but 39 of them have already been treated and are ready for adoption.

“One of them needs to have an eye removed, but he’s incredibly sweet and could be adopted right away,” she said.

Seabolt said the rest of the dogs will need to spend some time recuperating with rescue groups before they’re ready for adoption.

The couple living in the mobile home where the animals were found has been charged with cruelty to animals.

The Hall County Animal Shelter is located at 1688 Barber Road, Gainesville and is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. If you are with a rescue group and are interested in partnering with the Shelter or if you are interested in adopting a Shelter pet, call 678-450-1587 or log on to animalshelter.hallcounty.org.
