Humane society officials not pressing charges after 15 dogs seized

Posted: Updated:
MUHLENBERG CO., KY (WFIE) -

Humane society officials say they won't be pressing charges because they don't believe this was a case of hoarding.

Fifteen dogs were taken from a Muhlenberg County home last week, but officials believe the family involved had good intentions. 

Officials feel the family tried to give these dogs a home, but got in over their heads.

Officials are not releasing the identity of the people involved because officials say they are being cooperative.

All the dogs are older and appear to be in fairly good health. But just needed some extreme grooming attention.

Humane society officials believe the dogs were used for breeding and this family tried to rescue them, but got overwhelmed.

One of the 15 dogs has already been adopted, and several others will become available over the next few days.  If you are interested in adoption, you're asked to call the Muhlenberg Co. Humane Society at 270-338-6940.
