Chihuahuas found in hoarder's home grace holiday greetings

The Associated Press reports:

Two of about 100 Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes taken in by a Detroit-area animal shelter this summer following a hoarding case are getting some big exposure this holiday season.

The dogs, named Poco and Amigo, appear on the front of greeting cards being sold by the group Friends For the Dearborn Animal Shelter. Another set of cards being sold to help the shelter features a black cat.

Cards are being sold online for $10 for a package of 10, plus shipping. They're also for sale at the Dearborn Animal Shelter.

The shelter has been crowded this year. In June, it got 45 cats from one home. Police in July found a man with more than 100 live dogs and 150 dead ones in his Dearborn home. In August, the shelter took in 25 cats and a dog from another house.
