FRANKFORT, Ky. (WKYT) - On Wednesday, twenty-three cats and dogs
were rescued from a home investigators call 'filthy.'

The Franklin County Humane Society says the animals were found at a home on Willis Avenue, which is near Frankfort. Nearly five months ago, the humane society took in twenty-eight dogs from an animal abuse case. "We're still trying to make ends meet from that situation," explains Lauren Bailey, with the Franklin County Humane Society, "it's taken a strain on our food, our financial situation, our volunteers, just everything."

The humane society is reach out to the public for help. "We are at max capacity so the dogs had to be moved to a location off site. That is making it a lot harder because it's stretching our resources thin. Also, we need supplies for all these animals. Right now they are staying in a wire crate, but we are asking the public, if they can, to donate some metal crates or help us monetarily."

Officials say they are also in need of food, bedding and volunteers. "We need volunteers to help walk the dogs or just hang out with the cats. They need some human interaction."

If you'd like to make a donation you can do so by dropping items off at the location or online.
