103 Dogs Seized From Lafourche Parish Breeder

 

One hundred and three Brittney Spaniels seized from a Thibodaux breeder, will soon be transferred to foster homes across the country.

Till then, the rescued dogs are getting some much needed attention in Raceland.

Sixty year old Warren Michot was found guilty of cruelty to animals back in may and was ordered to substantially reduce the number of dogs on his property.

A court order Wednesday authorized Lafourche Parish to reduce the number dogs themselves.

Various Brittany rescue groups from across North America are caring for the dogs at a facility in Raceland made for animals.

“The parish vet is  here doing vetting,” says Susan Janowski with the National Brittany Rescue and Adoption Network. “ We have people that are local doing the grooming and bathing of the dogs. It paid off today. There`s 103 dogs that have new lives. And they are all going to be in great homes down the road.”

Bill Canny with NBRAN says the  Brittany Spaniels will be ready for adoption only after further assessment and acclimation at various foster homes across the nation, “We could not have done anything without the determination and the resolve of Lafourche Parish officials and the Sheriff`s office .”

“They are great family dogs,” says Janowski.  “Great with kids. They are great hunting dogs. They are bird dogs. Pointing dogs.”

The one hundred and three Brittany Spaniels will be ready for adoption only after further assessment and acclimation at various foster homes across the nation.

The Britts will be transferred on Saturday.
