LEXINGTON, Kentucky (WKYT) – Some of the dogs rescued from the Tennessee hoarding situation are now in the custody of the Lexington Humane Society and will soon need a permanent home.
In December, Tennessee authorities removed dozens of dogs from their dire condition inside their homes. After informing him of the situation, I was contacted by the Dyer Police Department.
Responders live in inhumane conditions and suffer from a variety of medical problems, including wasting, severe dental disease, fur loss, skin irritation, infections, and parasites. He said he found a medium-sized dog.
Some of them were puppies a few weeks old.
The ARC also reported that the house also contained the highest levels of ammonia ever recorded, made from compacted feces and urine. The WSMV reported that the owner moved out and occasionally returned to feed the dog.
The ARC said all animals were successfully removed, evaluated, and documented before being transported to a facility in Gallatin, Tennessee.
The Lexington Humane Society has partnered with ARC, and seven of these dogs are currently being cared for by the LHS. They are asking for donations to care for the animals.
