More than 100 animals rescued from KY home

MONTICELLO, KY (WSMV) -

A huge animal rescue effort in Kentucky has moved to Lebanon, where more than 100 animals are now getting emergency medical attention.

The animals were seized from a home in Wayne County, KY, and a shelter has been set up in Lebanon for them.

Crews say they were living in deplorable conditions.

"All animals lacked adequate living conditions, socialization and veterinary care," according to a news release from the The Animal Rescue Corps.

The Animal Rescue Corps says they are now taking care of 122 dogs, four cats and two parrots. Eight of the dogs were found to be pregnant.

Scotlund Haisley, president of Animal Rescue Corps, says the owner of the home was arrested and has been charged with animal cruelty.

And while the dogs were in tough shape, in poor health with no prior vet care, they are on the way to a quick rebound thanks to the daily care they've need their whole lives.

None of the animals is quite ready for adoption yet, but ARC will update everything on its Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/AnimalRescueCorps.
