These two are not even providing a proper environment for themselves, much less animals. They need mental help.

Excuses excuses! If tooooooo many...why have taken them in...if can't afford them, and you sure can't rely on others/donations...so put that blame on Pancake Hollow all you want, always blame others. You're disgusting people...you should never be allowed to have animals ever again, not even a turtle or goldfish...blame others, oh yeah, go ahead...not their fault you couldn't bury the dead, and put pitbulls with horses and cows...dumb, so dumb and disgusting!
You should loose that home/farm upon receiving all the bills for the problems you brought on yourselves!

The couple "may" have had good intentions, but anytime dogs are attacking a horse, a goat and eating the bodies of other dogs.......they are clearly not being cared for. Dogs when abandoned or ignored for long periods of time go back into the primal mentality in order to survive. Stories like this break my heart, because no creature on this planet deserves that. Just the thought of that kind of mistreatment makes my stomach turn.

This is a very unfortunate incident I would like to say this. Rockingham county has a animal shelter that is very small for the size of the county. It is a unfriendly place to try to adopt a dog. it is so small that when it gets over crowded alot of dogs and cats akilled. they didnt even get a chance to be adopted. The Adkins people i dont know them they probably thought they were keeping dogs from being killed like saving them. they sound like they have a hoarding problem. its sad that we in the south have such a over population of unwanted dogs and cats. there are good rescues that take dogs up north to be adopted because they dont have the overpopulation that we do. As for the Rockingham county animal shelter i would hope that your news station do a interview on them and just see what it would take to adopt a dog from there . The shelter needs some light shed on it .when you take a animal there you can just about bet on it will be put to sleep.

I think that this rescue in new york should also be investigated. If they were there a month and thought conditions were good...that doesnt say much for them. I think Bev Perdue should go back and make Suzie's Law effective the day she signed the law. It's just been to many abuse cases in recent months. These people need help if they think they are giving the right care to 93 animals. There's no way, wake up and smell the coffee. Your abusing these poor creatures!!!!!

alot of people just dont care about animals they will sit back in their own homes while their very own dog sits in the backyard CHAINED and starves to death, We've rescued so many and it just gets worse every time......but the bible tells us that God gave man dominion over the animals and when the good Lord returns, the covenant that God has with the animals will be lifted and then what...hmmmmmmmmmmmm....no more will man treat animals this way cause they will dominate...men will not be able to keep dogs as a pet any longer.....not to say I am not looking forward to it, but I cant wait til this animal cruelty finally stops........ but it always comes back on you!!!!!!!! and to the dogs that get rescued and placed with wonderful people they are lucky and to the ones that dont, there is not a thing we can do about it cause the guilty only get a slap on the hand in the country!!!!!
