The inspector found 22 dogs “in need of foster homes at this time,” said spokesman Arty Schronce of the Department of Agriculture.
He said 19 other dogs had already been placed elsewhere.
Nash disagrees. She said those 22 dogs do not need foster care, since they were in outside kennels not affected by the fire.
The Rome-Floyd Fire Department is continuing its investigation into what caused Tuesday’s fire, said Fire Chief Gordon Henderson.
The fire claimed the life of 37 dogs including nine Jack Russell terriers, one Boston terrier, six Chihuahuas, 11 Chihuahua puppies and 10 Boston terrier puppies.
A full report from the Georgia Department of Agriculture will be released once the investigation into the fire is complete, Schronce said.
Nash said Thursday she told the inspector that she did not want to renew her breeder’s license at this time.
She had planned on retiring anyway she said, but this is not the way she wanted it to happened, she said.
Nash is still trying to find homes for the other dogs, mainly the Jack Russell terriers, she said.
