It’s been called the largest bird and small animal hoarding case to date in our local area.

Metro Nashville Animal Care and Control confirmed they confiscated 368 animals Saturday, which included 111 rabbits, 182 quail, 58 pigeons, and 27 chickens.

Reports stated all of animals were being housed at the shelter where staff members have been working with local and national rescues to safely place the animals where they need to be.

Those with the shelter posted the following on social media:

“It was a long day, but an amazing effort by our hardworking staff and rockstar volunteers! What great teamwork! We will continue to update you as we have more information regarding placement of the animals.”

They added they’re currently in need of donations, including Timothy hay, fresh veggies, towels, rabbit pellets, and wash cloths.

In addition, they’re in need of the public’s help to find forever homes for the dogs and cats in their care.
