The Greenfield/Hancock County Animal Management Department is responsible for enforcing all city, county, and state laws with regard to the treatment of animals. The Animal Management Department serves all of Hancock County and performs the following duties:
Greenfield/Hancock Animal Management recently seized 28 dogs from a county residence that were found to be living in deplorable conditions. Due to the nature of the situation we had to hold off on putting this information out to the public and all of our rescue friends. As you know, we are a very small shelter, so the housing, veterinary care, and daily routine of managing this many animals has been a lot of extra work for the staff. The more important issue is that with the shelter so crowded, it makes for a very stressful situation for all of the animals.
Since the time of the seizure, we have had all 28 of the seized dogs seen by a veterinarian, and had 27 of them temperament tested. We have re-homed 2 of these animals but still have the other 26 of them, as well as the other animals that we already had in the shelter; and we need your help. We are asking our rescue friends and the public in general to re-home these poor animals. Some of the seized dogs do have some restrictions regarding the type of home they can be allowed to go to, but there are many others that Animal Management would feel comfortable placing in any home environment.
