Hundreds of dogs seized from Kentucky rescue

In Animal News, Help the Animals on February 24, 2009 at 4:13 pm


Shelters and rescues in southern Kentucky are struggling to deal with an onslaught of over 200 dogs seized from a hoarding situation at Clean Slate Animal Rescue in rural Adair County. When the dogs were seized last week they were considered subjects of a criminal case and other shelters couldn’t touch them. The Green River shelter took them in and is now allowed to release them to other shelters and rescues that can help.

The man who ran the raided rescue faces 295 misdemeanor charges of second-degree cruelty to animals. Authorities believe it is one of the largest cases the area has had.

If you would like to help the shelters and dogs, you can donate to the United Rescues of Kentucky here or visit their website.

  1. That’s bullcrap.

    That mans takes in the unhealthy, old, sick dogs and tries to restore them back to full health because he takes the dogs that no one else wants anymore, the ones that are about to be put to sleep.

    In no article that I’ve seen ANYWHERE has anyone mentioned that. Nor did they mention that the dogs were INSIDE from the weather. But when the ‘great’ volunteers came to ‘rescue’ the dogs, they were kept OUTSIDE in the cold, where some of them ended up giving birth and those puppies DIED.

    So yeah, way tooo gooo everyone. You did a REALLY good job of saving these animals, let me tell you. David did a really fine job of saving the dogs of Kentucky but you all screwed up everything. GOOD JOB!!

  2. Oh, sure, EVERYBODY keeps dead goats with live ones! And that is EXACTLY what was found in the school where this rescue was located. I am helping to transport some of the rescued dogs to other shelters this weekend, and more will follow. There are lots of people in KY who are helping to save our dogs; this was not the way to do it.
