On Monday, August 8, the Ashland County Sheriff's Office received a call from the Humane Society of Ashland County about a large number of dogs that were being held in a house on County Road 681 in Sullivan Township. 

After a search warrant was obtained and the house searched, three dogs were found dead and 25 others were held in cages with a large amount of urine and feces. The temperature inside the house was also registered at over 90 degrees.

Criminal charges are expected to be filed against the owner of the home.

The dogs are now with the Humane Society of Ashland County. Volunteers are currently examining, documenting needs and providing care for the rescued dogs. Once healthy and spayed and neutered, the dogs will be made available for adoption. 

If you want to support the efforts to provide care to the dogs, the Humane Society provided an Amazon wish list in which items that will directly support the rehabilitation process can be purchased. You can check out the wish list and purchase items here.
