MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The Animal Humane Society is asking for donations to help it care for the 107 dogs it rescued from unsanitary living conditions in northern Minnesota last week.

The Humane Society said it rescued 107 dogs and two cats from two feces-littered and urine-soaked trailers near Bemidji on Jan. 16. Authorities said the dog’s owners were hoarders. The dogs were not physically abused, although they do suffer from mental trauma due to the filthy conditions in which they were raised.

All of the dogs are now at the Humane Society’s Golden Valley facility. The organization says some of the dogs are ready for adoption. However, there are other dogs that still need to work with the Humane Society’s rescue partners in order to learn how to trust people.

Some dogs have trouble leaving their kennels. Some need medical attention.

If you would like to donate to the Animal Humane Society, head over to their “From a Hoarder to a Home” page.

The Humane Society says contributions will help the recovering dogs find a loving home.

    Mental trauma….really? We are talking about dogs here.

    Mental trauma? We are talking about dogs here. Dogs who like to sniff each others butts, lick and eat poo.

      What’s your point? Dogs sniff each others butts so they can’t have mental trauma? What a dumb thing to post.

      you are “Obviously” not educated on the lives of other species. I hope you never adopt a pet.

      Mr ‘Obvious’? More like Mr ‘OBLIVIOUS’. Maybe you should read a book occasionally instead of trolling message boards & posting garbage.

    Dogs (or any other animals) are not unfeeling beings. You’re darn right they can suffer mental trauma. We adopted a dachshund that was rescued from a puppy mill. He was a terrified little dog in the beginning, but he’s made a lot of progress. He still has nightmares almost every night, and is still very fearful of men, so it is quite apparent that his horrible beginning still affect him to this day.
