Rescued Animals Arrive In Lexington

Hundreds of animals were seized last week at a southern Kentucky animal shelter. Now they are finding new homes across the state.

Thursday night several dogs from Adair County arrived at the Lexington Humane Society. The shelter hopes to adopt all the dogs out to new "forever" homes.

The animals were found living in squalid conditions in Adair County and the owner of the shelter they were in is now facing animal cruelty charges. Five of the dogs rescued had to be put down because of illness. The rest are said to be going to different Humane Societies throughout the state.

If you would like to help, officials say you can always donate to your local Humane Society chapter.
