Doctor to Visit 70+ Great Danes Seized from Filthy NH Mansion
OSSIPEE — A Wolfeboro woman who had 75 Great Danes removed from her home back in June after the dogs were found living in deplorable conditions has found a veterinarian to visit the shelter where the dogs are being temporarily housed.
Dr. Samantha Moffitt is an emergency clinician at Central Animal Referral & Animal Hospital in Fredericksburg, Virginia. According to her bio, she was trained at Ross University in the West Indies on the island of Saint Kitts.
In a court agreement filed earlier this month, Christina Fay was allowed to bring in a veterinarian or veterinary technician to observe the dogs. However, a veterinarian could not be found.
In the motion to modify the original agreement, Fay's attorneys said a "relentless advertising campaign" by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) has "frightened the NH animal medicine community that no one will take on the task for fear of reprisal."
On Sept. 19, the judge allowed for a unnamed individual familiar with Great Danes to visit and observe the dogs.
The newest agreement, reached Thursday, says Moffitt will visit the dogs Monday, along with Fay's attorneys. The location of the dogs is being kept confidential.
A hearing on the case is scheduled for Tuesday.
Fay's trial is scheduled for Oct. 25.
