ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – More than four-dozen dogs rescued from a home in northwest Arkansas are on their way to St. Louis.
The animals, mostly adults with just a few puppies, are medium to large mixed-breeds that had been taken in by a person operating an unlicensed, self-proclaimed animal rescue group.
Some of the dogs are underweight, while others have eye and skin infections.
Realizing she was overwhelmed, the owner voluntarily agreed to surrender the dogs to authorities.
Now the dogs are on their way to Humane Society of Missouri headquarters here in St. Louis, where they’ll be examined by staff veterinarians for signs of injury or infection.
Once the animals are healthy, they will be made available for adoption.
