Humane Society Needs Help For The "Tiny 20"

The Humane Society of Southwest Michigan is dealing with a hoarding situation. Executive director Jill Svoboda tells WSJM News they received a call from an animal control office about the discovery of 50 Chihuahua mixes in a home in Van Buren County.


She says the most pressing need right now is for small kibble food for what's been nicknamed the "Tiny 20."


Money is also needed to help cover the costs of medical care, as the dogs have never been to the vet. They range in age from eight months to around 12 years, and most are terrified of people. As yet, the dogs can't even be tested for heartworm because of their fear of people. Svoboda says some are coming around, but it's going to take some time.
