Mange Puppies Receiving Treatment

These puppies are receiving medical help for a variety of illnesses These puppies are receiving medical help for a variety of illnesses

Two severely neglected puppies arrived at the Kentucky Humane Society's doors in desperate need of help Saturday evening, October 2.

These poor puppies are at our Main Campus receiving medical and treatment for demodectic mange, sarcoptic mange, skin and eye infections, and a variety of worms. They are exhausted from so many illnesses, and they are sleeping much of the day – just what their bodies need. Perhaps even worse than their physical ailments, these puppies have not had positive experiences with people, and so they are extremely fearful.

These puppies -- whom we have yet to name – will need months of TLC and many resources to help them become the happy, healthy puppies they should be and to be ready for adoption. Can you help by making a tax-deductible donation?


As heartbreaking as this photo is, we are grateful these dogs came to our doors, where they will receive lifesaving medical and behavioral help thanks to donors like you.

Update - 10.20.15

chance-and-graceIt’s been seventeen days since the two neglected puppies arrived at the Kentucky Humane Society in desperate need of medical attention. We are happy to report that the two dogs, now named Chance and Grace, are doing much better! Thanks to the dedication and care from staff and volunteers, their once raw skin has begun growing fur, they are rid of skin and eye infections and they are starting to learn what it means to be a loved pet. The pair are up playing with toys and each other but are still wary of people. Chance is the braver of the two dogs and will venture out to take treats from new people. Grace is still pretty shy and will need more TLC before she learns people aren’t so bad. They were spayed/neutered yesterday and will be going home with an experienced Foster caregiver hopefully this week in order to continue medical treatment and socialization.

Thank you once again for helping us with pets like Chance and Grace through your donations
