Dogs Get Second Chance In Lexington

Seven dogs arrived at the Lexington Humane Society on Old Frankfort Pike Thursday morning. All are full-grown and are ready to be adopted.

Police say they found those dogs at a Jackson County home along with dozens of others in filthy conditions last month. They were then taken to an animal linic in Grayhawk to be nursed back to health.

The Lexington Humane Society has been helping out since then. Three people face animal cruelty charges in connection to the case.

    As mentioned above this world faces many problems to include AIDS and other diseases. The least of my worries is animal cruelty. Good Day.

    I agree animal cruelty is a horrible act and, if it is done on a routine basis, it is also a psychological sign of a dangerous person however most people who commit such acts are not regular offenders. Yes there idiots and need punishment but lets not categorize animals the same as humans! I am tired of animal rights freaks putting more value on animals than humans. Lets take a look at one killer by the name of Hilton, who killed that hiker in Georgia. When asked why he did not kill the Black Lab Dog Hilton said he could not bear to do it! Yet he had no problem killing an innocent human being. He is like many of these animal rights fools. No one is saying cruelty to animals is not a crime! It is but I don't support stiffer penalties. Innocent people are murdered on a daily basis. Kids are horribly abused and raped. Drunk drivers kill hundreds. Terrorist and serial killers roam our country seeking their next victims. Animal cruelty is very low on my list.

    It's because of cases like these that stiffer penalties are needed. Defenseless animals need a stronger voice, and worthless humans need to face jail time!! Many thanks to those that have and continue to help!!

    Current state animal laws deem first conviction of animal abuse (cats and dogs) a "misdemeanor." This is shocking, archaic, and WRONG. Current law will not deter animal abusers from doing what they will with whom they consider "lesser" creatures. Furthermore, confirmed studies correlate animal abusers with those who commit crimes against humans. If humans don't have their own self-control, then that's what LAWS are for. Kentucky Legislature, wake up and take charge of this horrific situation by voting YES on SB 518.

    how can people treat animals this way? as a dog owner I couldn't imagine hurting one. Something should be done to help these defenseless animals from harm.
