New Albany animal shelter deploys PAWS program for the first time

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Nearly 70 small dogs were rescued and brought into a southern Indiana animal shelter Friday.

The New Albany - Floyd County Animal Shelter took in dozens of Chihuahuas and Chinese Crested dogs that were rescued from a property in Western Kentucky.

Friday was the first deployment for the shelter with its new program called Pets are Worth Saving (PAWS).

Director of New Albany Animal Control David hall told us the animals were unkempt and the home wasn't clean.

"The animals had free run in the house. There wasn't a lot of cleaning done. And the owner of the animals got overwhelmed," Hall said. “A hoarder doesn’t know any better.”

The Chihuahuas will be checked and evaluated by a veterinarian, and will soon be up for adoption.

The NAFC Shelter can transport up to 75 animals and house nearly 150 in emergency situations.
