SPENCER COUNTY, Ky. (WAVE) – More than 100 dogs have been rescued from Spencer County after living on one property in unsanitary conditions.
The Kentucky Humane Society assisted Spencer County Animal Care and Control in early January with the rescue of Huskies and other large breed dogs from one property.
Relatives of the dog owner voluntarily turned the dogs over to SCACC after the owner’s recent death, according to a statement.
With the Spencer County shelter not being large enough to accommodate the large number of animals or keep them safe, KHS and other shelters in the area traveled to Spencer County to rescue the dogs.
Dogs have received medical assessments and treatment while transport is arranged to shelters that have space.
“We are grateful that we were able to save these dogs and bring them to safety,” Lori Kane Redmon, President and CEO of KHS said in a statement. “It was a huge task which was only possible thanks to the incredible collaboration with our hosting partners and we are grateful for their support. “
KHS was assisted by the BISSELL Pet Foundation, Lexington Humane Society in Kentucky, Columbus Humane in Ohio, and Adopt Husky Rescue in Husky, Inc.
