The Lexington Humane Society said the dogs were surrounded by mounds of feces and carcasses of dead dogs; with limited human interaction, food and water; and abandoned by their owner.

Hammond said the dogs were evaluated by veterinary staff upon arrival at the Lexington Humane Society late Thursday night.

"The great thing about the Lexington Humane Society is once an animal is adoptable, we keep them until they get a home," explained Dr. Liz Ubelhor, the on-site vet as she checked out some of the dogs.
Many who came from the suspected puppy mill have medical problems, such as bad teeth and general poor treatment.

Now for eight of the dogs, the Lexington Humane Society is their first stop on their way to a second chance. Today, members of the Lexington Humane Society went to Whitley County to deliver supplies and pick up twelve dogs. They'd originally planned to take in twenty-two, but ten of those dogs have been adopted out. Spreitzer says she's seen tragedy like this before and she's not surprised so many people have stepped up.
