LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Some dogs rescued from a hoarding case at a home in western Kentucky are now receiving a second chance in Lexington. Lexington Humane Society officials say sixty dogs were seized from a home. Nine of them arrived in Lexington Tuesday afternoon. The other dogs were taken to animal shelters in Indiana and Ohio. Workers at the Lexington Humane Society say they're happy to help care for the dogs.
"Because of the kindness and compassion of people in the city and the businesses here in the community, we're able to take in these animals and care for them until they find a home. And that is just because of our Second Chances fund," says Ashley Hammond with the Lexington Humane Society.
The dogs have been checked out by a vet. They're being treated for skin and dental conditions related to the hoarding situation.
