Michelle Stout is just getting back her dogs after they were taken during the animal cruelty arrest of Richard Orlowske.
Stout started working as a live in manager of Orlowske's cabin in October.
Then, there were only 17 dogs, who she says kept her on a busy routine.
"Wake up first thing you do is start the washing machine, 2nd thing you do is pull all food and water bowls. Once all the kennels are clean and the dogs are put back in, they're given fresh food, fresh water, then you go outside and you basically start again."
She says as their rescue's popularity grew, more and more dogs started coming in.
"It became overwhelming very quickly."
Richard's Facebook page Save My Tail had hundreds of followers when he first started rescuing.
Stout says that made him think he'd get the help he needed.
"He looked at it as, I've got 300 people on here out of those 300 people I should be able to get at least three to come up, and that didn't happen."
She went out of town for a week right before the raidshe doesn't think Orlowske was able to handle the dogs alone.
"It was gross. It normally did not look like that. That would be the shelter not getting it's normal morning rounds and afternoon rounds."
She admits the dogs became too much for Orlowske, but thinks the raid and charges last week weren't necessary..
"I don't believe that he would purposely neglect any animal. I do believe that having too big of a heart and never saying no can get you in over your head.
