Dozens of emaciated beagles rescued from Lawrence Co. Ohio property
IRONTON, Ohio (WSAZ) -- Sixty-seven beagles were rescued Friday from a property in Lawrence County.
That’s according to the Friends of Lawrence County Rescue. The organization tells WSAZ that the property is in Ironton. Pitiful Paws Rescue and BREW are also assisting with the rescue and caring for the animals.
Volunteers say all of the dogs have some sort of mange and are emaciated, and many are very scared. Volunteers also say one of the male beagles spent the majority of his life in a cage, was used for breeding, and had never been on a leash -- causing him to negatively react when anyone tries to touch him.
At least two of the puppies have been taken to foster homes.
Friends of Lawrence County Rescue is looking for supplies and financial donations to help with the overwhelming number of animals.
