Animal Charity working to process foster homes for 105 puppies from alleged puppy mill

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -   Foster families have started picking up dogs confiscated in last week's raid on a breeding operation in Mahoning County.

Some people who applied to care for a dog may not have heard back yet, but there is a reason.

The phone has been ringing almost non-stop by people wanting to foster the 105 dogs and puppies taken from an alleged puppy mill.

Applicants came from as far away as Alliance. 

Animal Charity put out calls to trusted business owners like Scott McCluskey who owns Pet Lodge USA in Boardman. He told 21 News that his facility will foster, free of charge, about a dozen dogs. "We will supply all the food and care, and when they're ready to find homes for them we'll be ready to help them," McCluskey said. 

The agency has received about 200 applications to foster. Animal Charity says if you filled out an application to foster a dog don't call them to follow up on it. The agency is busy sorting through applications and will call you if you have been selected.

Executive Director Kayley Frost is asking for patience. Animal Charity is checking to see if dog owners have vaccinations for their current animals, and need to see if the pets the applicant's already own can get along with the new foster pet or pets.

Some of the dogs and pups have special needs and some are expecting puppies so there will be additional needs for those animals. 

Frost says the agency cannot finalize any fosters for adoption. She says whether the pets will be able to be adopted out permanently depends on the outcome of the court case that is pending.
