A warm reunion years in the making came from a hoarder situation that was uncovered in Brick late last year.
Daisy the bloodhound was reunited with her family after being separated from them for years. It’s unclear how she ended up in the hoarder home since her family is from Tennessee.
She finally was reunited with them over the weekend at the Ocean County Animal Facility in Jackson after the family drove 11 hours.
Police say Daisy was among about 135 dogs and 45 cats inside the home on the 100 block of Arrowhead Park Drive. An anonymous police tip due to a strong scent led officers to the Brick home, where they found cages on top of cages with animals living in deplorable conditions, police said.
It took approximately 10 hours for rescuers in hazmat equipment to remove the animals. Shelter officials said dogs have had to have several baths to wash away fecal matter that was even found in some pups’ gums.
Aimee Lonczak and Michele Nycz, who went by the name “Crazy Rescue Ladies,” were arrested and charged with animal cruelty and child endangerment.
Several animals, who visited our Edison studios, are up for adoption in Jackson! Those interested can call them at 732-657-8086.
