LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Doctors from the ASPCA spent Saturday evaluating dogs rescued from a southern Kentucky puppy mill earlier this week.
The 43-dogs range from Chihuahuas to bloodhounds to Boston terriers. They were found in deplorable conditions at Dreamcatchers Kennel.
They are now being treated at the Kentucky Humane Society in Louisville.
The doctors have found the dogs have a range of medical problems and social problems.
“We’re seeing dogs afraid to be reached toward; they’ve never walked on a leash [and] it’s clear they’ve panicked and are afraid to be on a leash,” Dr. Kat Miller said.
“After they have been fully examined for health and behavior, the Humane Society will take over the medical care to make sure that their behavioral needs are met,” Andrea Blair of the Kentucky Humane Society said.
Concerned viewers from across Kentuckiana have fueled adoption interests but the Humane Society says they’re not ready for adoption just yet.
