Supplies Head To Dogs Found Living In Filth

A shipment of supplies from Lexington will be shipped to Jackson County Friday to help dozens of dogs found living in filth.

Earlier this week, officials found more than 100 dogs living at a home in the Sand Springs Community.

Some dogs were dead. Others were in bad shape.

The Lexington Humane Society has been collecting food, bedding and other supplies for the animals.

Most of the dogs remain at the Gray Hawk Animal Clinic in Jackson County.

You can contact the clinic to offer assistance by calling (606) 287-8475.

    This is a story that I am horrified to hear about and wanted to help change the way Kentucky deals with animals, my husband and myself tried to build a animal shelter in Casey County.We have many dogs dumped here that we take in and feed and love.The same thing happened here but was covered up. It's a shame that animals continue to suffer and if you try to do something you are bullied into shutting up. There is an Attorney ready to take on Kentucky to make them comply.By the way!! Dog wardens were outlawed and no longer legally able to call themselves DOG WARDEN, as of 07/06/07. They are called Animal control officers, and if the one in Somerset is doing what you say he is.Contact us and I will put you in touch with someone who is making CHANGES. As for the people who say we dont help people , your right there too, but does that mean you should have to chose one over the other! We see families suffer also but we have a voice and animals who were domesticated by us dont.

    here in somerset, our dog warden would relish the thought of putting all those dogs doown. seems to be his passion, even goes on to peoples porches to get them, then rushes bac to the death house to kill them before the owners have a chance to get them. our county judge declares the dog warden has the authority to seize any animal and kill it he sees fit, with out owner permission. sounds a little like nazi germany. my advice, if you come toomerset. leave your pets at home.

    Now that everyone feels good about themselves, why not try using the same passion to human beings as well? It's a sad commentary when we quickly aid dogs and ignore people.

    Isn't it funny that we, as humans, can quickly come to the rescue of animals to help them out but are slow in coming to the rescue of humans who need it but don't get the media attention? In Eastern Kentucky, there are families whose children go hungry for a multitude of reasons; parents don't make enough money, parents spend their money on drugs or other things, welfare doesn't fully support a household, etc. I guess because these children have parents, we hold the parents (albeit irresosponsible ones) accountable for the children. Animals can't talk but then again, we never hear the voices of the children who go hungry. If we had two separate charitable funds set up on this website in which one was for abused and neglected animals and the other for children (who have parents) but still go to bed hungry and only have a limited amount of clothing, which fund do you think would get the most donations? My guess is the one for the animals. Kids don't get to choose parents either.
