Dogs Taken to Kentucky Humane Society for Medical Care, Adoption

January 19, 2015 – Eight puppies arrived at the Kentucky Humane Society’s Main Campus in Louisville today after they were removed from a hoarding-type situation in Eastern Kentucky.

The underweight, six-month-old puppies were found living in a squalid, excrement-filled home. One of the puppies is blind in one eye and all need socialization.

The puppies were discovered during an investigation by a local sheriff’s department. The owners agreed to surrender the puppies to the authorities, who then asked the Kentucky Humane Society for help.  At KHS, the dogs are receiving medical attention as well as flea, ear mite and deworming treatments. They will be spayed or neutered once they are healthy enough for surgery. A few of the puppies will need time in foster homes to become more socialized with new people, build confidence and gain weight before they are ready for adoption.

Located in Louisville, KHS is the state’s largest pet adoption agency and oldest animal welfare organization. KHS provides leadership and proactive solutions to pet overpopulation including spay/neuter, education and adoption.
