Hanover County patchHanover Sheriff David Hines is pleased to announce that a majority of the canines at the Hanover County Animal Shelter found loving homes on Wednesday, June 29. Over 200 citizens came out, some showing up as early as 4 a.m. Of the 66 canines that were available for adoption from the case of Commonwealth vs. Stephanie Saunders, 63, were adopted. In addition, five canines not associated with this case found homes. “I am extremely grateful to our community for their willingness to provide these dogs with loving homes. The donations received from the community assisted us greatly in the overall care for them. I would also like to thank the media for their coverage of this story. With the support of the community and the media, a total of 68 dogs found families,” said Sheriff Hines.
