A unique story involving the rescue of 30 animals from a Lebanon, New Hampshire home. The Upper Valley Humane Society, located in nearby Enfield, is now caring for the cats and dogs after their owner willingly allowed an animal rescue team to take the animals.
First responders notified humane society workers of the situation after the elderly homeowner was rushed to the hospital in response to a 911 call. In all, two dogs, 23 cats and five kittens were taken in by the shelter two weeks ago to today, with most underweight but in otherwise healthy condition.
We spoke to shelter Executive Director Ayeshah Al-Humaidhi about this influx and how you can help out.
The Upper Valley Humane Society serves 26 towns, and normally shelters somewhere around 200 animals on a given day. Donations can be made by visiting uvhs.org.
