Jeannie, the rescue's owner, has to re-home 50+ dog in the next 10-days due to a court order.

She loves her dogs, and her dogs need help. If you want a large dog, she has them for adoption. There is information above in the link, an embedded video from tonight's KDKA news, etc.

Anyone know where this place is. Saw it on the news today. I'm sure she initially ment well but thats just way to many animals for the amount of property involved.

It's on 982, on the left... near Quarry Road. Probably a half a mile before Glengarry Golf Course.

How did this woman amass over 70 dogs? If I do a search for something like Unity Township Dog Rescue, all that comes up are the recent news stories. Would someone just have to know that she exists, or does she pick up strays along the side of the road?

Is it any wonder that the dogs just keep piling up and that nobody is adopting them?

There are contact numbers at the bottom of the KDKA news story.

And, she's on petfinder, under rot-ger-am. If you put in 15650 as your search area for dogs, hers will come up after all the Action for Animal pets.

She's devoted to the animals. But, now she and they need some help.

She's on petfiner under rot-ger-am and her dogs come up after Action for Animals when you do a 15650 search for dogs.

She's a licenses Rottweiler breeder, and she's very kindhearted.

Most of the dogs she takes in are big, big dogs and some need experienced handlers.

The phone number and email address are at the end of the KDKA article listed in post # 1.

This rescue was never open to the public without an appointment.

She should have been turned in along time ago before she had 70 dogs. Sorry that the neighbors has to put up with someone so inconsiderate for the community. Who wants those type of dogs in the neighborhood? Guess it will take someone getting bit by those dangerous dogs before they will be moved.

Yes it's a shame even though she was trying to help theses dog's. But the fact of the matter is some would lead you to believe this is very important. NOT!!!! If all the time spent on people's animals why not spend the time on suffering humans. The very poor, homless adults and childern. Some of the homeless choose to live this way. Others have no other choice. I know some people are lazy and want a free hand-out but others don't. So everyone feeling sorry for the anaimals should look at the senseless spending of large amounts of money saving them and redirect those $$resources. If you need to help with $$$ for animals why not look around our neighborhoods and find the really needy people and apply that money so they may live. Think about it!

People ruin their own lives. There are always jobs they just aren't what people want. Children I get because they can't control their situation just like animals can't. People don't take care of their animals and leave them stranded, homeless, and starving. Some people pity them and take them in because It's not the animals fault just as it is not a child's fault their parents brought them into the world and they can't provide for them. I see homeless people who are on the street begging right down the road from the mall that has help wanted on their sign. People make their life. Animals and children are the victims of people being bad at life.

Whenever anyone posts about a family or person in need, the Latrobe TOPIX Greek & Republican chorus comes out to sing, "People need to get jobs" and "They can work for their hand up" and "Why should my tax dollars go to lazy welfare bums" and "Look at all their bling, they don't need food stamps" and "there are no people in the world, only lazy people" to "everyone can work or let them live on the streets."

It's just easier to help dogs...and far more rewarding.

I wouldn't expect you to go for anything BUT the easy route. It's your journey through life.

I don't think that everyone is just getting a hand out. There are people who need it. I get that, but when someone can stand outside all day begging, they can go to work. And did anyone see the photo of a guy going to a soup kitchen that Michelle Obama was serving at and he was so excited to be served by the first lady he took out his smart phone and took a picture. Hmmm....something is wrong here. That's why I can't really feel as bad for people. Animals can't speak for themselves or apply for help once their human owner throws them on the street. Animals are abused and a lot of them have such a sweet nature they just take it and hope to be shown love someday. So yeah I would rather help a starving animal then a guy with a sign asking for help on the side of the road who has a nicer coat then me and who checks his facebook app every ten minutes. Apologies. And I am not republican for your information... Just realistic.

It's impossible to go through a mountain. Very difficult to go over it. And much easier and simpler to go around it.

Dangerous?! Wow! F*ck you! It's people like you that she had AMASSED so many dogs. IGNORANT people that don't know how wonderful these dogs are and as$ holes that breed them over and over increasing the pet population because of their greed!
I'm a rottie owner and proud of it! You should be more afraid of me than my baby.

If Unity Twp only allows 12 dogs, how was this homeowner able to amass 78 dogs? The Twp surely could have done something before it got to this point. Laws on the books are useless if they are not enforced. Now the State has to be involved. Ridiculous! This woman should have been cited & fined by Unity Township long before now. Had that happened when she had 20 dogs, which is still an unbelievable number of dogs to have on a 1-acre piece of land in a residential area, SHE could have spared the 50+ dogs whose lives are now at stake. Sad but true.

She was allowed a certain amount as a homeowner, then she switched, legally, to a rescue. Then, the nasty neighbors bitched -- it is in a rural area. Each dog had a house and a kennel. They were clean. But, the neighbors did not like the barking. I have to admit, I don't like one dog barking.
