21 dogs rescued from Dunlap property

Now being sheltered in Chattanooga and Dayton

DUNLAP, Tennessee (WDEF) – Animal control officers have taken 21 dogs from a property in Dunlap.

Since Sequatchie County does not have any animal services, the Humane Educational Society in Chattanooga, Rhea County Animal Control, Perry’s Promise and Marion Animal Resource Connection have all helped take the animals in.

HES officials say the dogs appear to be chihuahua and spaniel mixes.

“They’re shy and need some time to warm up but melt in your arms once they feel safe – shelter staff are totally smitten with them. Some may need long-term rehabilitation. We hope the healthy and social ones will be available for adoption soon,” said HES Executive Director, Rebecca Bryan.

The HES vet team is evaluating their health on Friday.

13 dogs are in Chattanooga and 8 more are in Rhea County.
