Hoarder Case and Transport Follow-up

IDA’s Project Hope sanctuary works 24 hours/day to rescue, spay/neuter, and find homes for animals of all species. In January, Project Hope’s Director, Doll Stanley, led an effort to save 58 dogs rescued from a Mississippi hoarder. Now, less than two months later, we have a very happy ending.

As the video and photos below show, Project Hope staff just completed a long journey that brought the last of these dogs to their new homes. Along with other dogs (and 8 cats) rescued from a variety of situations, the dogs were transported to our friends at Every Creature Counts (ECC) in Ft. Lupton, Colorado. ECC brought the dogs to PetSmart’s “Winter Adoptathon” and every one of the dogs from the hoarder case was adopted.

AP coverage of our rescue efforts made newspapers all over the south and in Colorado. Readers were inspired to adopt the animals. These dogs went from living in a miserable, dilapidated, over-crowded house, to happy homes, in less than two months. And, those who needed to be spayed and neutered were! All thanks to your support.

We hope this story inspires you to contribute to Project Hope
, so we can continue our rescue work.
