A world full of misery, surrounded by death. That was Murphy's life and the lives of over 170 other desperate pets trapped in a horrific hoarding situation.

Perhaps for years, Murphy was kept on a chain. Heartworm positive, he had almost given up hope. He was so thin you could count the bones along his spine. In addition, Murphy was missing half the fur on his body.
That was his sad existence — until a fateful day in August, when Animal Rescue Corps and local authorities rescued the animals during their Operation Dog Days of Summer.

Do you remember Bert and Ernie from Sesame Street? They were best friends. This Bert and this Ernie are best friends as well, and they have been for 15 years. Both cats have lived together for their entire lives, and now at the ripe old age of 15, these sweet fellows were brought to the Kentucky Humane Society. Bert and Ernie were brought here because their owner’s health had declined to the point where she could no longer care for them. After spending some time at KHS they were finally adopted together, but were returned again because their new owner could not care for them due to health as well. Now these seniors are looking for a new home to spend the remainder of their life, together.

Darby was found in Calloway County at a mere 26 pounds--skin and bones. She's spent time in foster care to get to a healthy weight. And soon she'll be ready for adoption through the Kentucky Humane Society.
