Delaware Shelter Rescues Dogs from Kentucky

No kill shelter looking for families to adopt

The Delaware Humane Association, on A Street in Wilmington, has some new guests.

About 60 dogs -- from Pitt Bulls to Boxers and Labs -- arrived Thursday.

The animals were rescued from a man who was hoarding about 300 in a building in Columbia, Kentucky. Of the 60 that arrived in Wilmington, 40 went to other area shelters.

Nancy Costa, the veterinarian said the dogs were being treated for mites and will undergo more tests in the coming days. The animals will also be spayed and neutered.

Costa said what the canines really need now is a family to love them.

The humane association in Wilmington is a "no kill shelter," which means they will keep the dogs until each one has a family.

Those who work at the shelter say they plan to name the dogs after cities in Kentucky.

The association also has several other dogs and cats that are eligible for adoption, so if you're interested, visit their website.
