64 rescued guinea pigs & rabbits need homes

TWINSBURG, Ohio – When humane officers were called to a home in Akron in August, they rescued 628 animals, including birds, rabbits and guinea pigs. With little caged critters, doing what they do, soon 47 more animals were added to that total. “It’s been a little bit crazy, it sort of taxed our resources to the max,” said Karen Hackenberry, executive director of PAWSabilities Humane Society of Greater Akron. Hundreds of birds were sent to Bird Nerds Rescue and Sanctuary , who were better equipped to handle that number of feathered pets.

Guinea Pigs Can Be Source of Serious Strep Infection

TUESDAY, Dec. 16, 2014 (HealthDay News) — In the world of infectious diseases, one worrisome phenomenon is when an illness that originated in animals jumps over into people. The process — known as zoonosis — is not uncommon and keeps researchers on their toes as they look for signs that an animal-borne disease might make inroads into the human population. A new report focuses on just such a development — and the culprits in this case were guinea pigs. More specifically, they were guinea pigs infected with a bacteria known as Streptococcus equi subspecies zooepidemicus. “Animal to humanSource: http://www.philly.com/philly/health/HealthDay694579_20141216_Guinea_Pigs_Can_Be_Source_of_Serious_Strep_Infection.html

Sandy Barton: An uninvited guest heats up the holidays

72 bagged and tagged animals depicts ‘texbook hoarder behavior,’ SPCA says

More than 70 animals – including cats, dogs, guinea pigs, amphibians and a chinchilla – were removed this morning from a Getzville boarding kennel by officers from several law enforcement agencies. But when the rescue team looked inside the freezers at Dodge Boarding Kennels on Dodge Road, the situation became more bizarre. That’s where they found 72 dead animals, all bagged and tagged. “This is textbook hoarder behavior,” said Gina Browning, spokeswoman for the SPCA. “In some cases, the dead animals were better cared for than the live animals.” In total, the rescuers took away 77 live animals. Eventually, they decided toSource: http://www.buffalonews.com/city-region/amherst/dozens-of-dead-animals-found-in-getzville-kennel-freezer-20141107
