SPENCER COUNTY, Ky. (FOX 56) – Over 100 dogs were rescued from a breeding operation in Spencer County, just ahead of the historic winter storm that hit the area on Jan. 6.

Volunteers spent two days moving the dogs from unsanitary outside housing to safe places.

Eleven of the dogs were taken to the Lexington Humane Society (LHS) to receive food, medical care, and be prepared for adoption.

LHS said the dogs were hungry, sick, wounded, and playing with discarded trash at the time of their rescue.
