NEW YORK (MorichesDaily) – Sixty-eight animals including 30 dogs were rescued from a blaze in a Staten Island home Friday Evening.

Fire officials say the fire was in a two-story house and it was quickly extinguished in about a half hour.

No humans or animals were injured in the blaze.

Officials say the owner of the single-family home was a hoarder who collected animals as well as trash.

Some of the animals were kept in a yard next to the house.

Besides the dogs, it’s not clear what other types of animals were rescued.

    "Sixty-eight animals including 30 dogs were rescued from a blaze in a Staten Island home Friday Evening."

    … and then …

    "Animal Care and Control officers removed them to a shelter, according to the Fire Department."

    … they were taken by Animal Control that kills 64% of the animals it is entrusted with.

    Yeah, the guy who was giving them a place to live and feeding was a real bastard, huh.

    It's the same argument abortionists use, that it's better to be dead than to suffer in poverty.

    People are twisted.
