HUDSON, N.Y. -- There has
been a wonderful turn of events for the nearly 50 dogs removed from the home of
a suspected animal hoarder in Ghent.
The animals were found in some
of the worst conditions animal rescuers at Columbia Greene Humane Society have ever

be placed in loving homes this weekend. Cairn terriers, Chihuahuas, and Dachshunds
will be beginning the first days of the rest of their lives.
