On Tuesday WLBG reported on the seizure of 116 dogs from one house by Laurens County Animal Control. That many dogs at one time created a serious over crowding issue at the Animal Control shelter and it appeared that a large number of dogs which had been at the shelter for two weeks or more would have to be euthanized.
On Wednesday, through a combination of individual adoptions and the assistance from local animal fosters and animal rescue groups from throughout the region more than 100 dogs were removed from the shelter.
That’s the good news but the dogs at the shelter aren’t quite out of the woods yet. Even after those dogs were gone, Animal Control was still left with only two open kennels at the close of business on Wednesday evening.
So, the shelter is still basically full and there are still dogs in danger. Officials with Animal Control tell WLBG that if there were five of the larger dogs adopted on Thursday NO dogs would have to be euthanized.
