Ninety-five cats and dogs — many in urgent need of veterinary attention — were rescued from a property in White County, after authorities discovered them living in filth and suffering from a lack of basic care.
Arkansas State Police called in The Humane Society of the United States and other area and national organizations, including the Humane Society of Saline County, Central Arkansas Rescue Efforts for Animals, and RedRover to assist in the rescue and removal the animals.
Many of the animals reportedly were suffering from respiratory problems as well as skin, eye and ear conditions.
The HSUS’ Animal Rescue Team has removed all of the animals from the property pending the final disposition of this case. At a temporary emergency shelter in Saline County, the animals are being thoroughly examined by a team of veterinarians, including Dr. Robin Viscardis and Dr. Eric Jayne, and will receive any necessary immediate medical treatment.
The full story will be in Sunday's issue of The Saline Courier.
