Sixty dogs receive warm place to stay

Posted by: Melissa McKinney - bio | email

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - 60 dogs of all shapes and sizes out of the cold and into a safe haven.

Humane society officials found more than 100 dogs at a man's house in Blount County.

He was using his property as a rescue for stray animals.

But officials say he was quickly in over his head.

"Absolutely horrendous and unacceptable conditions. Dogs found without any access to any food or water, any water that they had was frozen," says Scotlund Haisley, United States Humane Society Senior Director of Emergency Services.

Authorities say the man voluntarily gave up the dogs.

That's when they brought some of them to the Montgomery Humane Society where volunteers helped carry them to safety.

Suzie Tubet says it's the least she can do.

"Dogs are like humans. They have feelings, they need caring for, they can't basically stick up for themselves," she says.

Humane Society directors say they'll start preparing them for adoption within the next few days.

"We're going to put them up, make sure they get food and water tonight and start processing them tomorrow. Hopefully we'll have some up by the end of next week, and it'll be the following week when the rest will come up," says Montgomery Humane Society Executive Director, Steven Tears.

Humane Society officials say the Montgomery shelter could end up receiving the remaining 40 dogs if they have the space.

They say the man who was holding them in is not facing charges at this time.
