Angels of Assisi helping rescue 42 dogs, 31 cats from S.C. home

Cats, dogs expected to arrive in Roanoke on Tuesday night

ROANOKE, Va. – A Roanoke-based organization is helping to rescue more than 70 animals from a home in South Carolina.

The rescue team with Angels of Assisi is currently rescuing 42 dogs and 31 cats.

The owner was no longer capable of caring for them and surrendered them to animal control, according to Angels of Assisi.

The organization says that the conditions in which the animals were being kept were much worse than anticipated and many of the animals are in desperate need of medical care.

The shelter is asking for donations to help with the care. If you're interested in helping out, click here.
