Only one dog survives after being rescued from Garden City home

GARDEN CITY, GA (WTOC) -

More than 20 animals were confiscated from a home in Garden City because investigators said they were living in squalor.

Some of those animals were taken to the Human Society of Greater Savannah, but unfortunately, not all of them could be saved.

Eleven dogs were brought to the Humane Society and they were all very malnourished and in bad condition. Executive Director Lynn Gensamer said they were only able to save one of the dogs, but now it is ready for a new home.

Meet Buddy. He's a terrier mix and officials at the Humane Society estimate he is about 12 years old. He is in need of a better home than where he was found.

He, along with 19 other animals, was taken from a woman's home on Priscilla D. Thomas Way. Officials said she neglected to take care of them, and many of them were covered in their own feces.

Gensamer said they tried to save all of the dogs they received, but most of them were either too sick or wouldn't let people near them. All of them except Buddy, who is now healthy and who they believe will be socially accepting of a new family.

"He might have been socialized when he was younger because many of the other dogs did not appear to be that old, and so we're speculating that the only exposure that they had to people was in the home from which they came," said Gensamer.

Gensamer said Buddy is up-to-date on all of his shots and is ready to be adopted. Be sure to come and meet him at the Humane Society of Greater Savannah.

Garden City police officials said they are still investigating. There is no word if the woman who had these animals will be charged. There were also some horses that were taken to Effingham County, where they are being nursed back to health.

    Not for sale, at least right now.  A vote from Savannah City Council at the very end of the regular meeting on the 12th strikes down a bid on a portion of the fairground property scooped up by Savannah a little more than a year ago. We're asking why that bid was shot down, and talking to the would-be developer who says the city's decision was a shock. Savannah City Council determined that the bid from Aeroscope Studios on 15 acres of the fair ground site wasn't enough. Lo...
