Humane agents discover animal hoarding in Youngstown


YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WYTV) – Two days after humane agents discovered animal hoarding at a home in Lordstown, Animal Charity was called to a Youngstown home for the same thing.

They found 34 dogs, two cats, a snake, multiple rats and birds living at 1937 Weston Avenue.

The Mahoning County Dog Pound called Animal Charity after getting a tip that there were too many animals in the home and people were smelling ammonia.

The owners signed the animals over to the humane society¬†because they didn’t have any licenses for them.

“They were surprised. They didn’t think it was a big deal, or that they claim that they were rescuing, and that just doesn’t add up,” said humane agent Tommy Schneeman.

The animals were taken to Animal Charity. No charges have been filed.
