Animal Rescue Removes 76 Dogs From Mingo Co. Property

An animal rescue organization recently removed more than 75 dogs from a property in Mingo County.


Guardians of Rescue was contacted by a local rescue to retrieve the animals from a property in Thacker.


The 76 animals were found well-fed but without access to clean water.


For two days, the rescue group found some dogs chained to trees and sticks and some roaming in a flood plain unable to escape the elements.


The dogs had formerly been cared for by the homeowner, who died a couple of weeks before the rescue was contacted.


No charges will be brought to the family at this time. They signed a mutual agreement to allow Guardians of Rescue on the property to take ownership of the dogs and remove them.


The rescue will reach out to local authorities for further investigation.
