BEL AIRE, Kan. (AP) — Authorities say 135 animals have been rescued from the home of an alleged hoarder near Wichita.
According to Bel Aire Police, the count on animals rescued during the animal hoarding investigation:
2 Guinea Pigs
1 Turtle Dove
14 Norwegian Rats
1 Red Eared Slider
15 Ornate Box Turtles
1 Flag Crown tail Beta Fish
The rescue group Beauties and Beasts so far has taken in 10 dogs and one kitten from the home. Randi Carter with Beauties and Beasts says most of those animals had been fixed but some of the older dogs need medical care.
Forty other animals, including the guinea pigs and turtles, went to a pet store, where they will be quarantined for two weeks before getting new homes.
