VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - Many dogs are in need of a home after being surrendered to the Virginia Beach SPCA.

The Virginia Beach SPCA announced on Facebook that 45 dogs were surrendered to the facility from a hoarding situation at an Eastern Shore home. They say in total there were more than 100 dogs living in the home. Virginia Beach SPCA says the dogs arrived scared, dirty, and covered in fleas.

Virginia Beach SPCA says they need the community's help to find these dogs a home. 33 dogs will remain in the care of VBSPCA and the rest will go to Compassion for Canines, another local rescue organization.

VBSPCA says the dogs will be bathed and receive basic medical care by their vets.

As of October 18, 2021, none of the dogs are available for adoption. They need time to decompress. The animals will show up in the adoptable animals section of the VBSPCA website when they are available.

The organization is accepting new and gently used sheets and towels. They are also recruiting new volunteers to join their volunteer program
