4 Rottweilers Rescued by Animal Rescue Corps at KHS

On Monday, June 5, the Kentucky Humane Society received four Rottweilers that had been rescued by Animal Rescue Corps (ARC) during their Operation Mayday 1, in which 35 animals were found living in neglectful conditions in Luray, Tenn. 

The dogs at KHS are Sheba and Lucia, estimated to be 1 year old; an 8-month-old named Xena; and an eight-week-old puppy named Constance.

All four dogs have been examined by the KHS veterinary team and have been cleared for adoption. They have been spayed, micro-chipped and vaccinated. They will be available for adoption later this week.

Animal Rescue Corps announced they have another case of over 65 animals they rescued from a property in Reagan, Tenn., supposedly operating as a rescue group. KHS has been asked to assist with some of these animals as well (dubbed Operation Mayday 2). This is in addition to the many calls KHS is receiving from overcrowded municipal shelters throughout Kentucky, asking for help with large dogs.

To make room for incoming animals, KHS is offering $40 adoption fees for dogs 40 pounds or more through June 30. The Rottweilers are not part of this special, as their higher adoption fees will help pay for animals who will spend more time at KHS before they are adopted.

How to Help

In addition to adopting, KHS is asking the public for donations for the more than 500 animals they are currently caring for.
