Hoboken, GA – What happens to the death row dogs taken in by a rescue? The dogs that nobody wanted at the shelter, but who were eventually saved?
What happens to the dogs who were confiscated from a hoarder? Dogs who were saved from certain death by a rescue?
Sometimes those dogs find homes – sometimes they do not.
Sometimes those dogs stay with the rescue for months – perhaps years.
What happens when people are no longer concerned about these dogs because they are technically “safe”?
One rescuer in Hoboken is currently swimming in unwanted dogs.
Over her head in dog-care duties.
Drowning in debt from the expenses associated with such care.
This rescuer is desperate and sadly, is now at her wits end.
A plea went out today via mass email – “Rescue has had enough. Dogs will be PTS on Tuesday at 9 am”.
One excerpt from the email states the following:
I have begged and pleaded for over a year now, and we just can’t do it anymore. We couldn’t even attend our adoption event this morning as we spent hours trying to round up dogs that keep getting out of their pens.
This is an individual who is no longer able to care for the lives that are in her care. This is a person who has pleaded for help.
A rescuer who needs assistance.
A rescuer who took in a large number of dogs from a hoarding situation and a rescue who is no longer able to properly care for those who need care.
This rescue has sent a list of the dogs that MUST be moved – or the alternative, as stated in the desperate letter.

Anyone who is able to assist Max’s Animal Rescue is asked to email: [email protected]
I would implore those who are reading this story to not pass judgement on the rescue, but to understand what a monumental task it is to care for so many homeless animals.
Instead, please help network these dogs – help to get them moved to somewhere safe.
One individual responding to this plea for help wrote an incredibly sad and thought-provoking statement:
When rescues are so overwhelmed now that they are going to have to put down their own dogs, how can we save animals in shelters anymore?
