Kentucky hoarding situation

On March 2, a team of UAN's Emergency Animal Rescue Service (EARS) volunteers joined The Humane Society of the United States and the Bowling Green-Warren County Humane Society (BGWC) to care for more than 125 dogs rescued from horrific conditions at an Adair County hoarding situation.

Three-hundred dogs were rescued from a former school house in Columbia, Kentucky earlier in the week, and rescue groups throughout the state were able to take in many of these animals. After local resources had been tapped, the BGWC Humane Society reached out to The HSUS for assistance in transporting, sheltering and placing these needy animals. The HSUS then called in UAN to assist with the sheltering needs of the approximately 125 dogs.

  1. I just want to say "Thank You" to all of you who take time out of your busy lives to take care of these animals. You all will be rewarded greatly in the future. Thank you for giving of your lives, hearts, and souls for these animals that can not defend themselves. YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!

  2. i actually adopted one of these dogs - she is terrified of everything and everyone but is still a very sweet tempered animal - she didnt know sounds of birds, cars, tv, stereo, fingersnapping etc - she is coming around very slowly with help from my jack russell pup but has a long way to go...a very sad thing under any circumstances, but to instill such fear in loyal animals for the sake of a dollar is about as low as humans can go - i truly hope the people responsible receive their "just rewards" in court - but probably not - sure would like a bit of time in a dark alley with them...
