Central KY Shelters Pitch In To Help Abused Animals

A Jackson County animal shelter says they are swamped with phone calls, after taking in dozens of abused animals from a home.

Police removed more than a hundred dogs from the home in the Sand Springs community on Tuesday.

The Gray Hawk Animal Shelter took in the dogs but say they can't put any up for adoption until they're nursed back to health and the courts approve.

Other animal shelters across the bluegrass are pitching in to help out.

The Lexington Humane Society is sending 500 pounds of food and some bedding to Gray Hawk. They'll also send a team of volunteers there on Thursday.

Humane Society officials say they can also house some of the dogs, once the courts give permission for them to leave Jackson County.

If you want to donate time, money or materials, you can contact the Lexington Humane Society or the Gray Hawk Animal Clinic. You can make a donation to the latter at:

P.O. Box 387
McKee, KY 40434

You can also call them at (606) 287-8475.
