39 Rescued Dogs Make Way to Kentucky Humane Society

Nearly 40 rescued dogs and puppies arrived at the Kentucky Humane Society last week after being removed from neglectful and abusive situations by Animal Rescue Corps. Eleven of the dogs were saved from a puppy mill in Ecru, MS, where they were kept in cages and used as breeders. The remainder were rescued from a variety of recent ARC cases, including a shuttered animal organization in Tennessee.

Because of lack of veterinary care and unsanitary, inhumane living conditions, the puppy mill dogs were found to have a range of medical issues, including severe and painful dental disease, mammary tumors, fur loss and skin inflammation, ear and eye infections, reddened and raw feet from urine scalding and the wire flooring, and untreated open wounds and sores.

At least four of the dogs will require socialization and behavioral help so they can gain confidence and learn to trust people.

As of Monday, November 9, 12 of the 39 dogs at the Kentucky Humane Society were adopted. Others are either waiting for adoption or are still receiving medical or behavioral help at KHS.

PLEASE GIVE. In order to continue helping other rescues and caring -- medically and behaviorally -- for dogs and cats like these, we need your help. KHS is a private, nonprofit agency and does not receive government funding. Your gift will provide lifesaving medical care, nutritious meals, warm beds, spay/neuter, vaccinations and microchips to prepare pets for adoption! Give today and help us help them.
