rescued yorkies now up to 123

an elderly couple said to have hoarded 92 yorkies in a feces-filled home in poway actually had 31 more dogs hidden off-site, the san diego humane society said friday. 

the little dogs were found at a different poway location on tuesday evening and taken into custody, spokeswoman kelli schry said. 

that increases the total number of dogs turned over by the couple to 123 — 114 dogs and nine puppies. 

already, more than 200 peole have reached out to the humane society via facebook or email to express interest in adopting the animals, schry said., but that doesn’t put them on any kind of list for consideration. 

updates on when the animals will be available for adoption, as well as how to apply, will be posted on the humane society’s website. schry suggested that people sign up for the society’s e-newsletter or follow them on facebook for updates on the yorkies. 

schry said the humane society’s law enforcement officers to learned of the additional dogs through an anonymous tip. officers realized the dogs were linked to the elderly couple, and convinced the pair to sign legal custody of the additional dogs over to the humane society. 

schry said she could not provide more detail on the case, which remains under investigation.

there is no set date yet as to when the dogs will be available for adoption. schry said the first 92 have already been groomed and are in line to be spayed or neutered, as well as to receive vaccinations and be microchipped. 

in a similar case in december, humane society officers rescued 78 dogs from an el cajon home where feces and urine coated the inside. many of those dogs, most of them small breeds including chihuahua and dachshund mixes, have since been adopted.
