A 6-year-old dog that was rescued from a hoarder house in Brick Township last month is getting a second chance at finding its forever home.
Chrissy the collie’s story goes back to the year 2017 when she first escaped her adoptive family. She was rescued nearly three years later by people at the organization Hound Hunters.
Hound Hunters has to return Chrissy to the shelter she was legally registered to – Crazy Rescue Ladies. This group was recently linked to an animal hoarding case in Brick. Chrissy was one of almost 200 dogs and cats found living at the home, which was in deplorable conditions.
The rescued animals were split up between three local animal shelters. Hound Hunters contacted the shelters in an attempt to find Chrissy.
“We immediately reached out to them for help, because the shelters were not going to give these animals to just anybody. They were giving them to people they had existing relationships with,” says Kristy Linney, of Hound Hunters New Jersey.
Chrissy was named after Suzanne Somers’ character in the television series “Three’s Company.”
“It feels like it came full circle. I feel like with us, is kind of always where she belonged,” says Linney.
Chrissy will stay with Hound Hunters until she gets a permanent home.
