LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) – Some dogs are on their way to their forever homes after being rescued from deplorable conditions.
On Thursday, April 3, 31 dogs were taken from filthy conditions from a home on Alexandria Drive.
The Lexington Humane Society calls the rescue scene one of the worst cases of animal neglect it’s ever witnessed.
Paco, BJ and Bandit are three of four Pomeranians up for adoption.
The others will need to be tended to a little more before they’re ready to go to a new home.
Barbara Combs is the woman who allegedly left the dogs in feces and conditions that were deemed inhabitable for humans by Lexington-Fayette Animal Control.
The agency's been investigating her since the 1990's.
"They have had multiple baths, vaccinations, whatever they needed," said Ashley Holder, the Development Manager with the Lexington Humane Society.
Because the dogs have been cooped up in cages for most, if not all, of their lives you may have to do some leash training with them.
If you're interested in adopting, go to the PetSmart in Hamburg.
If you'd like to donate to the shelter go to the Kentucky gives website, which is www.ky.gives.org
It’s one of many organizations participating in a day-long giving event on Wednesday, April 9th.
