Neglected Group Of Puppies Rescued In NKY To Be Adopted Out

FORT THOMAS, Ky. (WLWT)-- Eight puppies are getting some much-needed attention after they were dropped off at an animal shelter in Gallatin County.

At least two of the 5 to 6 week old puppies have painful head injuries. The others have problems internally, but officials with Lucky Tales Rescue say they are now on the right path.

The animal rescue is now caring for the dogs and calls this a case of neglect.

"Just makes me mad that people do this and sad for the puppies. They're so young," said Laura Morgan, Lucky Tales Rescue president .

Morgan is helping eight puppies get a second chance.

The dogs were surrendered to the Gallatin County Animal Shelter Wednesday by someone other than their owner. Then, they came to the Fort Thomas Animal Hospital.

"They were, like I said, super dehydrated. They were full of worms. We immediately wormed them, gave them some fluids, let them drink some water and then started feeding them little meals," Morgan said.

Morgan said they have staph infections, likely from unsanitary conditions.

It's a case so significant, two of the dogs have trauma, scar tissue and missing hair on their heads.

"We're not really sure if it was like a burn or a really bad infection or if you know, another dog got ahold of them," Morgan said.

But because the dogs were turned over to the right people, they have a shot at finding a new home, hopefully by Christmas.

"They haven't had a life yet, so we're just glad that we can start their new life and get them on the road to recovery," Morgan said.

The dogs are headed to foster homes where they will learn what the rescue calls "puppy manners." They will also get plenty of food and medicine to get them well.

The rescue's president said although this is a case of neglect, it's unlikely the owners of the dogs would ever be reprimanded because it's not clear who owned them in the first place.
