The dozens of dogs removed from a Pike County home were dirty and matted but “very loving and friendly,” the Fayette Regional Humane Society wrote Tuesday on Facebook. Now, they need new places to live.

Their former owner was dead by the time Pike County deputies arrived and realized law enforcement would need help getting the animals safely out of the house.

The Fayette Regional Humane Society wasn’t the only animal welfare organization called in to help. Pike County Dog Wardens and the Ross County Humane Society also pitched in, ultimately removing more than 60 dogs and puppies from the home.

“Now settled in our animal care and adoption center as well as the Ross County Humane Society, their new journey begins,” the Fayette Regional Humane Society wrote. “The dogs have received blankies, toys, food and water.”

Anyone hoping to adopt one of the rescued dogs can contact the Fayette Regional Humane Society, the Ross County Humane Society or the Pike County Dog Shelter.
