200+ dogs at Animal Services in Sarasota due to hoarding/puppy mill bust

By now everyone has heard about the huge puppy mill/hoarding bust in south Venice. They can call it whatever they want but it was a breeding operation (puppy mill) gone bad. Orlando and Tampa have both sent groups to take dogs as have several groups in this area. My only question is where is the Humane Society of Sarasota County? Why have they not stepped up to take some of these dogs? They have pulled from out of state but can't help the county they are based in?
You can help. Please check out this email below and contact the other groups who are helping. They can use volunteers, groomers, FOSTER HOMES. These are all small dogs. Please help if you can.

If you can foster call me, email me or the following people:
  Travis at the Humane Society of Manatee County  941-747-8808 x 303      tjones@humanesocietymanatee.org
-Underdog Rescue-   Shona  941-713-6531  sotto11@verizon.net 

I will find out if other groups are taking some but Fosters are desperately needed!!!  If there ever was a time you could foster please help now- 200 is a lot of dogs!!
