Seized Animals To Arrive In Lexington

Some of the animals rescued from filthy conditions at a make-shift Kentucky shelter are expected to arrive in Lexington Thursday.

The Lexington Humane Society will receive at least ten dogs in the afternoon.

The animals were found in Adair County along with 300 other dogs and cats.

The man charged in running the make-shift shelter, David Howery, has pleaded not guilty to charges of animal cruelty.

It's feared many of the animals may have to be put down if no home for them is found.

    The Humane Society deals with animals not humans. Social Service is suppose to deal with children. While I understand people want to help neglected children (and if you are a spokesman against child abuise great)but animals that are abuised need help too. So thanks to all who speak out to protect the animals. To those who want to help children instead of animals, be a spokesman for abuised children but let the animal lovers speak for the animals if they wish to do so.

    Like Meg I've also heared that they where talking about putting the animals down in the news however I hope it's not true. But what worries me is what is going to happen after they are evaluated like what someone said below. I'm afraid the animals may not be out of the woods yet. Also good job to Meg who is out trying to protect these animals from being put down. Of course any one who works there would say that the animals are in good hands. So Meg don't let no one stop you.

    To the person who responted to me. I'm glad to hear the animals are not suppose to be put down. However don't tell me "Don't go around spouting off stuff about them." I heared on the news they where talking about putting them down.

    to meg- LHS isn't going to put them down. They have to be evaluated first. Don't go around spouting off stuff about them. I work there and they're in good hands.

    Thank you to Carolyn from Magoffin Co. So many people would walk by a home where children were being treated like these animals and turn their head the other way. I suppose the Humane Society isn't as "humane" as it seems.

    I think it is awful about these animals , but I to think it is awful when animals are give more thought than childern . If you want to see someof this just drive around a trailer park that is full of trash . Childern desire a good life also, but to often animals get more care than them .

    They are animals--I really don't care! Lets worry about humans first.

    To help save these and all adoptible animals, shelters need to change the ways they operate. Optional donations are often more palatable than paying a fee, often higher than purchasing a purebred dog withpapers. Offer free adoption with spay/neuter stipulations and discounts and the problem will lessen, it never goes away

    katie-- i would highly recommend actually going and meeting the dogs yourself before adopting one. if you just look at the pictures that will be a big mistake because you ahve no idea what the animal is like. please do the animals and yourself a favor and go visit with the animal a time or two before you adopt.

    If you live near where these animals have been taken and you can give them a good home please go and abopt. Rather it's one or more it's better than setting back and letting them be put down. They have already been threw enough and it's not right for the shelter's to put them down especially since they haven't been their long. Please have a heart for the saddest dogs in this group first and abopt them over any happy looking ones (if there are any) because more in likely they are the ones who will be put down first over the others. I think it's cruel the shelter is talking about putting them down like they haven't been threw enough. Like another comment I read they are no better off there than they was with their abusiers and that's not saying anything. When you rescue a pet you are suppose to help it have a better life not try to kill it. Maybe the shelther people need to think what they would want done if they was one of the dogs instead.
