Regional Animal Control has given an update on the 19 animals found on a Sherman property where the home collapsed due to a fire. The 18 dogs and 1 chicken were found living in very tough, outdoor chained and caged situations. Three cats perished in the fire. Though none of the animals removed from the scene presented immediate, emergency life-threatening injuries or ailments, these animals will need a significant amount of veterinary care. This matter still currently stands as under investigation. Anyone looking to make contributions toward their care are asked to send donations to Animal Welfare Society, Inc. in New Milford, by calling 860-354-1350. A separate account has been set up by them specifically for their care.
