August 2020, Madison County Authorities seized more than 300 dogs living in squalid conditions. The execution of the search warrant took over 30 hours. Arrests were made and multiple veterinarians volunteered their services to provide triage to dogs on the scene. Several rescues like Guardians of Rescue and the Dickson County Humane Society (DCHS) are just two of the organizations that helped provide care for the animals.

DCHS took in two Doberman and six dachshunds from the rescue. See full article here

On February 28th, The Humane Society of Dickson County and Dickson County Animal Control conducted an emergency rescue of 32 dogs and 15-16 horses and mules from an animal neglect situation in Charlotte, Tennessee. The dogs were found living in deplorable conditions in two small buildings on a private property. One horse was immediately euthanized due to health concerns. The HSDC team was able to place 9 dogs directly into rescue organizations. The remaining 23 dogs were brought to the shelter. Of those, 14 were heartworm positive. All of the horses and mules have been placed in foster care.
