Over 100 Dogs Rescued From Logan County Puppy Mill

LOGAN CO. Ky.-“It was just awful.”

100 dogs, living neglected in a puppy mill, are now at the Logan County Humane Society.

“Dogs living in their own feces but no space piled on top of each other I mean some of these dogs that we suspect hadn’t seen the light of day for as long as they’ve been on this land,” Logan County Humane said. Executive Director of the Ray Wilson Company.

Dogs range from smaller breeds like Chihuahuas, Dachshunds, and Yorkies to larger breeds like German Shepherds and Huskies.

The dogs’ arrival puts the Logan County Humane Society at more than twice capacity…but a nearby humane society steps in to help.

“Unfortunately, by the time a situation like this in Kentucky leads to a trial, conditions are already very poor, said Bowling Green Warren County Executive Lorri Hare.

The BCWC Humane Society has agreed to take some of the dogs that have been at the Logan County shelter for some time…although they are also at capacity.

“We’re going to try to take six or eight today that have been here a bit longer and try to shine a light on them and if we can have some really good adoptions coming back and then we can get the ones that haven’t. haven’t had a lot of foot traffic to get them adopted,” Hare said.

The puppy mill dogs are adorable…but they can’t be adopted yet because they’re part of a trial. Eventually, they will need foster families. The staff just asks the public to be patient.

“I just did all of this upfront work for the puppy mill animals, checking, intakes, so they’re ready to be nurtured themselves, we’re stripping all of that out so we can go from there. forward and move on to meat and potatoes because foster care is going to be a huge deal for us,” Wilson said.
