Tri-State businesses raising money for dogs taken from Posey Co. home


Tri-State businesses are helping to raise money for the nearly 100 dogs that were found in a Posey County woman's home.

The Pet Food Center is one of those businesses.

When you go to check-out, they have a donation jar where you can donate either cash or dog food.

All the money will go to PC Pound Puppies - one of the agencies taking care of the dogs.

And employees say the community is showing their support.

Last Friday, animal control crews rescued the dogs from a home in Griffin, Indiana.

Our cameras went inside the house -- it was filled with feces and the dogs were covered in it.

"These groups are very small organizations,” said Susanne Gainey-Odoyo with Robert John and Associates. “A lot of them are volunteer based. They don't have the room, so that's why this plea for help went out.”

She says Tuesday night they posted on Facebook that the company would donate $3 per comment.

Their goal was $1,000 to help support the dogs, and they reached it within the hour.

Through the page - Jill Bates wrote "We are fostering one of the pups in this horrid situation, we have fallen in love", while others wrote "every dog deserved a chance."

"We wanted to do as much as we can because so many dogs are going in and out of these shelters,” she told us. “And we want to provide as much as we can so they can find great homes for these dogs and that they can live a happy life.”

Now other businesses are helping.

"Save the 72" is Pet Food Center's campaign to raise money for the rescued pups.

They say they will keep donation jars out until all the dogs are taken care of.

Charges against the homeowner are expected to be filed by the end of this week.
