Subject: UPDATE!!! Hamilton, IL: EMERGENCY 18 hoarder dogs!!! OMG! HELP NEEDED, please! $$
To: Anissa Sadeghi <>

Hamilton, IL: UPDATE!!!  I apologize for the delay in getting this update emailed out.  It has been a very long exhausting day but I am thrilled to report all 18 dogs are groomed, bathed and received health exams and vaccinations.  They are resting comfortably in boarding with full bellies and warm blankets.  Some needed ear medications, some needed antibiotics for abrasions and skin sores underneath all the fur, some have eye infections and all needed a bath, nail trims and grooming!!  At the end of the day, seeing these wonderful dogs happily eating and drinking and snuggling down for the night was one of the most gratifying moments I have had in a very long time.  To top off the day, we have secured rescues for all 18 dogs and transport has been set up for tomorrow.  A lot of effort and team work came together to pull this off and I just wanted to say THANK YOU for all the support and concern. 
(Our Dr. Harrell put on a groom smock to help jacket today!   We have the best vet staff on the planet!!

Hamilton, IL: 18 dogs today!!!  EMERGENCY HELP NEEDED ASAP!!!
I have seen a lot in my 13 yrs of doing animal rescue but this situation really leaves me heartbroken………………..
……We took in 18 dogs from an horrible home situation, they were owned by a 73 yr old man whose wife just went into a nursing home.  These poor souls lived in sm crates throughout their house.  He agreed to let us take custody of them and I consider myself a pretty thick skinned kinda of gal,  but honest to God, these poor dogs are about as miserable as it gets.  Some so stained with urine, their hair is yellow and OMG the smell!!  Their nails are curled into their pads of their feet. Yet, we got tail wags and kisses…tears…sigh…..We don't have a shelter building and all are at our vet clinic tonight.  I am begging for help here everyone, we don't have the resources to care for this many dogs at one time on top of the others that we have right now.  It was a very difficult decision to take them all in right now but he wouldn't let them to anyone else, and no one knew how bad they were until they got brought to our vet clinic.  If we didn't get them now, we weren't sure he would let them ever go. 
The Hancock Vet Clinic has offered to let them board at half the rate per day but they also will need their exam and rabies as well as bordetella and dhpp's. 
At least 10 of the 18 are in critical need of shave downs. 
I am begging for sponsors to help with their care, even $5 will help, PLEASE PLEASE contact our
vet clinic directly 217-847-3911 Hancock Vet Clinic 1930 Keokuk St Hamilton, IL 62341 or we have a paypal account
(the clinic opens at 7:30am-5pm). With boarding, vaccinations, grooms, we are estimating $75/dog. 
If you are a licensed rescue group and can help pull a dog or two and cover their expenses, PLEASE PLEASE contact 
We are counting on your help to help save these very deserving dogs!
(**we haven't had a chance to take inventory on what breeds, males/females, ages yet.  Some we can't even tell what breed they are yet.)
