Some dogs, cats from LMAS hoarding case to go to other shelters

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Animal Services is still considering charges against the person who surrendered 66 dogs and 12 cats to them last week.

All the animals are being cleaned up and given a medical evaluation. Many are dehydrated and in need of socialization.

Volunteers are working to socialize them and work with them on leashes.

LMAS says the Lexington Humane Society took 15 of the animals that were turned in.

LMAS says it is working with Oldham County to take 10 animals to use for the prison program. Those animals will live with approved inmates who will help train them.

Donations are still being sought to help care for the animals. LMAS needs items like unopened high quality dog and cat good. Monetary donations are also needed.

It's not clear when the animals will be ready for adoption. LMAS says it could be weeks or months.
