More than 45 dogs rescued from hoarder’s house up for adoption

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — More than 45 dogs rescued from a house in El Cajon went up for adoption Thursday. They were part of a group of dogs found living in deplorable conditions.

After over two decades of being married, the Lords are bringing home their newest addition.

"We recently bought a new home in Vista so we finally have a yard so it was time to add to the family. And we saw on the news the rescue of the 78 dogs," said Emily Lord.

Trumpet is one of the 78 dogs that were rescued from a home in El Cajon recently.

They were dogs living in unsanitary conditions. Thursday morning, 45 of those dogs were ready to be adopted out and the San Diego Humane Society was packed with San Diegans who were willing to step up.

Each adoptive family is getting to take home not only their new furry friend, they are also getting a free bag of food, courtesy of Purina.

In fact, Purina is paying the adoption fees for all of these special dogs, then the rest when they are ready for a new home.

It’s not only a new home, but a new life for these cuddly creatures.
