Rescue groups trying to find homes for dogs seized in investigation

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

"We have about 12 volunteers here today caring for these animals and it takes from 7:30 in the morning to 7:00 at night to properly care for (these) guys," said Jennifer Kulina-Lanese with the Humane Society.

"So I don't know one person could think they could do it and obviously they couldn't or we wouldn't have had to intervene,"  she said.

The dogs were seized from Callie Able's Edgefield County home last week. She's charged with seven counts of animal cruelty and some the dogs have the scars to prove it.

Some dogs' coats needed to be shaved off because they were so matted.

"They were living in deplorable conditions," said Kulina-Lanese. "Some were underweight with major health concerns."

But they are slowly being nursed back health.

The goal now is to find emergency placement partners, which are non-profit animal rescues or county agencies that can offer shelter until they find a permanent home.

"It's a great for these guys," said Kulina-Lanese. "(They're) on their way to getting the care and love and they deserve."

If you're a non-profit animal rescue or county agency that would like to become an emergency placement partner, contact the Humane Society of the United States.
