In June, 50 dogs and puppies were rescued from a Great Bend home, and the good news is that 11 have been adopted, and 24 were transported to an Unleashed Pets Rescue Adoption in Mission.
There are still 15 or 16 that need forever homes. “We are looking for a rescue for them,” said Seth Orebaugh, director of the Golden Belt Humane Society.
The dogs are a collection of terrier, beagles and dachshunds and included several pregnant females.
The owner of the dogs received citations for not owning a kennel license and for housing more than four dogs. In addition, the dogs did not have current rabies vaccinations.
Roberta Barlow, the owner of the animal, is scheduled to appear in court on a Monday next week or the week after, according to the city attorney’s office.
In addition to these resuce animals, the humane society virtually always has animals that need good homes. It currently costs $25 to adopt a cat, $55 for pups and $65 for adults. The spay and neuter prices varies according to weight and sex from $56 to $88.
After the GBHS picks up an animal, they hold them for three days before they are available for adoption.
