WEST BLOOMFIELD – Animal control officers from Oakland County Animal Shelter & Pet Adoption Center recovered nine dogs from a home in the 5300-block of Hauser Way in West Bloomfield on March 18.

The officers responded to the address after receiving information that there may be several dogs
there connected to the case of 33 dogs who were seized recently from Aaron Moishe Cemetery in
Roseville by Macomb County Animal Control.

Linking both groups of dogs is a woman who claimed to be running a rescue out of a garage at the Roseville cemetery.

The 51-year-old woman at the center of the investigation does not own the West Bloomfield home, but
resides there. She is cooperating with investigators. State law does not require a license to operate an
animal rescue.

Local ordinances, however, determine how many and what kind of animals may be kept on a property. If investigators conclude any of the dogs were abused or neglected, they will request charges.
