Animal Control Officials Make Request

Animal control officials in Laurel County are asking anyone with unwanted pets to bring them to the shelter for possible adoption instead of adding to the growing stray population.

Officials spent much of the morning trying to round up several dogs and cats they believe were left long ago on sinking creek road.

The animal shelter takes a high number of calls from the neighborhood about strays and about 90 percent are euthanized.

Officials say the longer these animals live on their own, the less likely anyone can adopt them.

Five dogs rescued on Tuesday are now under the care of a vet.

It's still unclear if the dogs are safe for adoption.
