Animal Welfare League of Trumbull County seeks help

One hundred sixty-two dogs, 18 cats, two horses and multiple fowl and chickens are looking for new homes after a 58-year-old woman's animal rescue for unwanted pets was shut down amidst close to 200 counts of animal cruelty this weekend.

Caring for the neglected animals since their rescue, The Animal Welfare League of Trumbull County awaits a judge for official custody. Foster families and kennels are already needed, though.

Can you help with either foster care, time or cash for food for these poor creatures?

"Volunteering time or willing to foster and/or adopt would be great," President Barbara Busko tells me. "E-mail with their name, address, phone number, best time to call and what days and times they are available to volunteer. Or they may call 330-394-3512. And we will need monetary donations.

"Really appreciate your willingness to help."

Located at 545 Brunstetter Road SW, Warren, 44481-9600, the Animal Welfare League is open from 1 to 6 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays. The group can also be contacted at
