Chaucer’s Charity Pet Rescue located in the state of Illinois is definitely not a rescue for pets. Animal control officers found one dog and two cats dead in the house and the remaining animals were living in horrible conditions where fecal matter filled the house. The 14 cats and 3 dogs that are alive have been placed in foster care.
One woman who couldn’t physically take care of her dog anymore gave her dog to the rescue thinking that her dog would be well taken care of. Instead her dog died at the pet rescue.
This is not the first time that the woman who runs the pet rescue has been charged with animal cruelty. In February 2006, 42 cats, 9 puppies and 3-4 dogs were removed from her house because of poor conditions, and her pet rescue was shut down. She was not licensed to continue operating her facility.
