Dogster Hero: The Vet Who Helped Dozens of Dogs Out of a Hoarding Situation

Grace Anne Mengel, Penn Vet staff veterinarian, received an urgent phone call in late July. In a hoarding-like situation, a breeder in Louisiana was found to be housing nearly 150 Magnolia Brittany Spaniels.


Sue Spaid, president of the National Brittany Rescue and Adoption Network, had made arrangements with local police to have the dogs removed from the horrible conditions. The dogs were then sent to a holding facility, where a team from Louisiana State University’s veterinary school triaged them and administered rabies and DA2PP vaccines.
